PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Sources tell us that Nokia is developing a Linux-based replacement for its S40 phones, called Meltemi. The news was leaked, accurately, by the Wall Street Journal last week. Now we can confirm it. The thinking is that a Linux-based replacement for S40 will allow developers to tap into proven development tools - and Qt. The April memo referred to Meltemi as a platform for 'rich Featurephones' and stated that development will be centered in Ulm, Germany. There's no U-turn, however. Meltemi had been long-been touted as a richer successor to S40. Windows phones will occupy the budget smartphone segment, not Linux."

Maybe i don't know what i'm talking about but how many QT developers is going to want to develop applications targeted to a budget worldwide featurephone market whom 90% don't even have a credit cards (ok maybe advertising type sponsored apps).

And if they decide to develop it, it probably wont be any big budget project because it wont pay for itself.
