Qt When Microsoft and Nokia announced Nokia's move to Windows Phone 7, most people assumed the worst for Nokia's stewardship of the open source Qt, and indeed the company quickly sold its Qt licensing interests to Digia. But it looks like the company still has plans for Qt - and for the Symbian OS. Aaron Seigo, a Qt hacker employed by Nokia, told blogger Brian Proffitt that "Nokia is predicting over 150 million Symbian devices still to come" and "I think they've underestimated the longevity of Symbian".

Actually I'm pretty excited with the possibility of working with Qt Quick to create Android applications, as I hate coding Java and XML on Android.

Have you ever looked at the XMLs for declaring UIs on Android? And how much LoC you have to do to create small stupid things? It's horrible!
