PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Nokia Conversations caught up with Nokia's CTO Rick Green at this years Mobile World Congress being held in Barcelona and asked him about the future of Symbian, MeeGo and Qt, as you all know a radical change is coming to Nokia's strategy soon with the announcement of the new partnership with Microsoft, on Friday. A partnership that has been leaving Symbian and MeeGo users and developers alike with mixed feelings as to the future of these two OSs"

RE: Qt on Windows Phone

I wouldn't mind Qt coming to Windows Phone one day, provided it becomes dramatically more mature. QML vs XAML is in it's current state, a complete joke.

However, it's really the best that non .NET programmers have. They have good ideas, they just require more incubation. If I were Nokia I'd be pushing Qt big, because it goes beyond mobile phones.

My strategy would be replacing traditional Qt with a declarative Qt based on QML (basically, create a native Silverlight clone) and get it running fast. People would fall over themselves to use it.

Let's also not forget that WinCE which WP7 builds on, has a C++ version of Silverlight. So who know's what Microsoft is planning in terms of native code.

That's what Nokia is doing, putting QML over QSceneGraph that sits on top of OpenGL & is highly accelerated. This skips the legacy QPainter paths completely.

On non-WP platforms, that is.
