PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless As the third high-profile departure at Nokia in recent months Ari Jaaksi, vice president of MeeGo devices and operations, who had worked at the company since 1998, told Finnish newspaper Talous Sanomat that he resigned from Nokia last week. According to Nokia Communications Manager Tapani Kaskinen the departure will not affect MeeGo's development schedule. Nevertheless the news cast doubts on whether we'll see a MeeGo-based device from Nokia before the end of 2010.

WinP7 is programmed using Microsoft's proprietary .NET framework, which goes with QT4 like oil to water.


Actually, you can develop with Qt4 in .NET by using https://techbase.kde.org/Development/Languages/Qyoto Qyoto, which provides bindings to .NET.

Thanks, I didn't know that!

However, this doesn't make it possible to develop an app that runs on both Windows Phone 7 and Symbian. It makes it possible to write a Symbian (or MeeGo) app in C#, at least in theory. That's a very different thing.

In other words, Qyoto is a C# wrapper for QT4 classes. To write a WinP7 app, though, you wouldn't use the QT4 classes, but rather the Silverlight and XNA classes.

So replacing MeeGo with WinP7 still makes zero sense for Nokia IMHO.
