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.

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.

I'd guess it will be free as now, and Digia isn't going to change the status quo and their mode of balancing commercial and free licenses. Making Qt SDK / Qt Creator non free will momentarily cause a community fork, complicating the whole thing. I doubt Digia wants that.
