PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless A lot of people are wondering why Nokia didn't choose to go with Android. How can Nokia differentiate themselves when Android is a lot more open and free than Windows Phone 7? As usual, the key to this is in the details. If you read the announcements carefully, you'll see that Microsoft offered Nokia something Google most likely didn't. Update: What a surprise. Elop just confirmed Nokia has a special deal with Microsoft. Whereas HTC, Samsung, and so on are not allowed to customise WP7 - Nokia is, further confirming my theory.

I beg to disagree. QT is quite successful on Windows for small companies that didn't want to go, .net or java.
For Desktop C++ development it started to shape up as a standard.

Qt have its queers in some platforms, is not perfect, and I bet in mobil it wasn't the wonder they tought.

"It work great on Windows", everyting works great in Windows, but how about the other platforms? the "Runs everywhere" also means "Debug everywhere".

queers or not, QT is always orders or magnitude cheaper than a rewrite. And being a native toolkit it always enables you to have a controll which parts will go native.

That combination of productivity/eng. freedom/performance are not shared by any other framework I know about.
