PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I'm still reeling from the unrivalled epicness and awesomeness that is Sucker Punch in IMAX (just got home - do not miss this film), but now I'm back to boring old reality where we apparently care about pieces of plastic that go beep. So, anywho. The deal between Nokia and Microsoft has many Symbian and Qt developers worry about the future of their platforms. To address these concerns, Purnima Kochikar, vice president of Forum Nokia, has published an open letter describing Nokia's plans for Symbian, Qt, and Java for Series 40 devices. While the letter doesn't deliver any hard dates, the transition phase to Windows Phone 7 is set to 2011/2012.

Though Nokia left the "burning platform", as someone wrote somewhere, the platform [Qt] right now is "burning brighter than ever" ;)

Learn Qt, do something for Meego... Intel is still promoting it; C++ is more challenging to learn than Java and Qt is the right framework not just for mobile development, but for desktop development too.
