Rumor: Mobile version of IE9 to appear "well before fall 2011", to include Silverlight

Rumor: Mobile version of IE9 to appear
As you most probably know a massive Windows Phone update is scheduled to appear in late 2011. Codenamed Mango, it's set to bring multitasking and a mobile browser based on IE9 among other goodies. Now, however, a tipster at WMPoweruser has a different information - he/she claims this browser will be separately released from Mango "well before fall 2011" and will support not only HTML5, but also Silverlight.

This info, if true, is certainly a great news for all early adopters of Windows Phone 7, since a good mobile browser is of great importance for most smartphone owners.

The first Windows Phone update, codenamed NoDo, is expected to roll out in the coming days.

Soo are all of us samsung users out of luck for nodo as well? I'm sure it will at least have a significant delay.
