Red Five Labs has released a beta version of Net60 – the .NET Compact Framework for S60 which is available for immediate download. Net60 is a ground breaking implementation of the .NET Compact Framework running on S60 3rd edition devices, it enables managed Windows Mobile applications to run unchanged on S60 devices. Using C# and Visual Basic .NET in Visual Studio, developers can now use the .NET Compact Framework environment to build applications for Symbian devices.
To get your hands on the software you need to complete the sign up process and wait for the account to be approved. This beta version supports S60 3rd edition devices.
However, please do note that not ALL Windows Mobile applications will run using this software. It only enables the .Net applications to run. Still this is one of the better things to happen for S60!
