PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless We've got some breaking news, folks: Intel and Nokia have just announced a partnership in which they will merge Maemo and Moblin into a new product called "MeeGo", aimed at just about any type of device you can imagine. This is one of the rare (but very welcome!) moments of convergence in the mobile Linux space.

The problem is that Qt is overrated. It is way better than GTK but is far from a state of the art toolkit to build a decent application with.

The underlying problem is that C++ is still not the ideal language for efficient GUI development. Objective-C is much better suited.
It would have been a better decision for Nokia (and Google and maybe even Microsoft) to use Objective-C + GnuStep and invest in it.
This way they will forever struggle to catch up with Apple.
