Qt As some had already anticipated when Nokia acquired Trolltech, the next version of the Maemo platform will have its application framework based on Qt instead of Gtk+. This news was announced at the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit. While the switch to Qt may seem a major defeat for the GNOME community, this isn't exactly true, as many of the underlying technologies will still be GNOME-centric.

I don't see how the fact that maemo will still use freedesktop standards makes it gnome centric, since kde also uses them.
Also being qt based doesn't make it KDE based. Nokia aquired trolltech and it is easier for them to eat their own dog food, there is no conspiracy or something like that
