MySpace today announced support for Microsoft Windows Mobile and Microsoft Silverlight.
The new MySpace mobile application, available this summer, will run on Windows phones and use Silverlight, Microsoft’s free browser plug-in that powers rich Internet application (RIA) experiences, with the MySpace Open Platform.
The companies are in close collaboration to offer a MySpace for Windows Mobile application that will be available for download later this summer.
The application integrates MySpace’s main social features and functionality with the Windows operating system to provide access to the community in a way that’s familiar to the Windows Mobile user.
The MySpace application will be available on Windows Mobile 6.1 phones later this summer and then in the fall through the Windows Marketplace for Mobile, directly through phones, and the Web.
LG will preload the MySpace application on a Windows phone. The new Windows phones are expected to be available in the second half of 2009.
