Microsoft Silverlight 3 launch event set

Company on July 10 to tout rich media technology as well as design tools platform

Microsoft is planning a launch event on July 10 for its Silverlight 3 technology and the accompanying Expression Studio 3 toolset, a company representative said Friday evening.

The company has not yet announced official ship dates for the two technologies, the representative said. But the launch event, planned for the San Francisco Bay Area, is intended as an opportunity to highlight the work customers and partners have been doing with Silverlight and Expression Studio, and to tout features of the two releases. Silverlight is Microsoft's plug-in technology for rich media applications.

Version 3 has been slated to offer offline capabilities such as search engine optimization and multi-touch support, as well as hardware-based graphics acceleration.

Expression Studio has featured Microsoft's Expression suite of application design tools  for building Windows and Web interfaces.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
