Qt Digia has announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire the Qt software technologies and Qt business from Nokia. Digia has sent a letter to the KDE team that it intends to pretty much continue what Trolltech and Nokia built up, so not a whole lot ought to change for KDE - luckily.

- Nokia has not much of value left that is from interest for Microsoft. Market share? Gone. Software+services? Already transfered. Hardware? Factories closed and hw is done at 3th party in china now. Patents? They are already sold in pieces. Brand? Microsoft has with Windows an own brand and they just established or are establishing Surface.

Nokia as of now is just unactractive. They need to split and sell of all remaining parts separatly.
