PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "It's turning out to be a busy week for Nokia. Days in advance of NokiaWorld in Stuttgart, and a couple of days after lifting the curtain on its first netbook, Nokia has announced the Nokia N900, the successor to its almost four-year-old lineup of Internet Tablets. The N900 follows in the footsteps of the N810 with its slide out keyboard, but adds for the first time built-in 3G (Nokia calls it 3.5G) functionality, making the N900 the first Nokia tablet with the ability to go online without a WiFi connection or cellphone pairing. It's also the first Nokia device to run Maemo 5, Nokia's homegrown Linux distro."

Though the current Maemo revision is GTK not QT yet. I believe Maemo 6 is slated to be QT.

Maemo 5 does ship with Qt 4.5, so you can write your apps in it. Gtk-based Hildon is the "native" UI for this device though, and all the bundled programs are written using it.

It's also perfectly possible to write most of your app (backend) using Qt, and then slap a Gtk UI on top of it.
