Microsoft Silverlight, the web plug-in from the folks at Redmond, has made no secret that they've been trying to get into the iPhone. But with Apple controlling all the gates into their one slab device, it's quite obvious that it'll be a long time before we see Silverlight on the iPhone. In fact, the best they've done is simply just spoken to Apple about Silverlight.

So what does a developer do when spurned by one company? Even one as big as Microsoft? Simple, move on to the next company. Luckily, that company is Android. Android with its open-source, all apps are a go, anti-Apple approach will be monitored closely by the folks at Silverlight and to quote,

"[Android] is something we're going to continue to look at. Certainly as it's gotten deployed and if sales are good we'll definitely keep our eyes out and look at that in the future."
