You have to check this out… Hard Rock Café is using the Deep Zoom technology to power the site showcasing their huge collection of memorabilia.
Deep Zoom is basically allows users to view super high resolution imagery from 3MP to Gigapixel scans, all without using huge amounts of bandwidth. Silverlight 3 also introduced support for multi-touch – the ability to poke and pull applications, as you would on the iPhone using two fingers, for example.
All this will be supported on windows mobile platforms, which is already supported via desktop browsing.
