Qt Digia has announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire the Qt software technologies and Qt business from Nokia. Digia has sent a letter to the KDE team that it intends to pretty much continue what Trolltech and Nokia built up, so not a whole lot ought to change for KDE - luckily.

Based on their statement, it sounds as if they will continue to pursue Qt as a cross platform mobile toolkit. Sort of like what the Mono company is doing. The desktop versions will continue to be free, but the mobile SDK will not. As much as I don't like that, its better than Qt disappearing completely. I would ask them to undercut mobile mono, its too much for a single indi developer who releases his apps for free.

Where did you see that the mobile SDK will not be free?

I didn't. I was just guessing that might be an attractive way to go, because Xarmin (what ever the mono company is called) proved its a viable business model.
