Nokia has announced the first technology preview of Qt 4.6 for the N900 (Maemo 5). Highlights include a ntive look & feel via Hildonized style, hardware acceleration with OpenGL ES 2, input method support (hardware keyboard and software keyboard), global menu integration – QMenuBar will be mapped to Maemo’s global menu, online/offline support in libQtNetwork and other cool things.
Took me a while to realize that it was the video on my computer that was pausing due to lack of bandwidth, rather than the n900 struggling to do the demo. But it looks really, really good.
Also neat how they were demoing openMap, rather than the non open GPS map software that was offered on the 810.
