Qt Qt Software today announced the porting of Qt to S60 on Symbian OS, the open smartphone platform. With the inclusion of the S60 platform, developers have an additional 80 million target devices that they can support with their Qt-based applications. An early technical preview of Qt for S60 is available for download from Qt Software current website.

Maemo + QT

I would have to lean towards the opinion that QT would be a better fit. I own a N810, and hildon can be pretty clunky at times. It's almost as bad as having windows mobile. I was surprised to see how well full KDE could run on the little device. I think it would be a win/win for Nokia to push for convergence of platforms. Having all Nokia devices running QT would surely benefit from some developer synergy. I love my N810, but I must say, I am not a huge fan of Hildon at the moment.

It was announced some time ago, that maemo would be gaining QT support. Will be interesting to watch.

I second your opinion on Hildon. I am a ruby programmer who uses Qt bindings for my GUIs and am happy with the direction this is going! Woo Hoo!
