Nokia focusing on Qt, will extend reach for Developers

21. October 2010 at 23:04

Nokia today announced that it is streamlining its development environments across device platforms and focusing solely on Qt as a robust, tried, and tested framework that unlocks the hardware, software, and service capabilities of the existing Nokia smartphone range. The company also will create huge opportunities for future Symbian and MeeGo products.

‘We’re making strategic technology decisions that will accelerate our ability to offer the strongest possible opportunity for developers and the richest possible experience for consumers’, said Rich Green, CTO of Nokia.

In addition to focusing on Qt for application development, Nokia announced its intent to support HTML5 for development of Web content and applications for both Symbian and MeeGo platforms. This will ensure continuity throughout the evolution of Symbian, enable applications to work on both Symbian and future MeeGo devices, and at the same time, provide developers with a simplified means of developing on the Nokia platform.

As a result of this change, Nokia is able to focus on a constant evolution and improvement of the platform. For example, rather than replacing Symbian^3 with the Symbian^4 release, Nokia will be in a position to gradually and constantly upgrade Symbian^3 to introduce the benefits expected from Symbian^4. Ultimately, this will result in a better, more compelling experience for consumers who will have access to the applications they have come to expect from developers working on Nokia platforms, along with an improved product experience.

This marks a major step forward in removing fragmentation in Nokia’s developer offering, enabling the creation of native and hybrid apps using Qt and Qt Quick (a high-level UI technology that allows developers and designers to work together to easily create animated, touch-enabled UIs and apps). In addition, Qt’s in-built support for HTML5 complements Nokia’s intent to support HTML5 in Web browsers. (Note: the Nokia Qt SDK 1.0 is currently available for download on the Forum Nokia website; Qt Quick will be available in the next release of the SDK.)

Perhaps not surprisingly, many developers are already working in Qt, and have great things to say about their experience. Brett Butterfield, CEO at Pixelpipe noted: “Elements of our UI that were previously taking us hours of painstaking hand coding in Symbian are now re-created in minutes with the Qt Creator. It’s not just the ease of porting our existing functionality to Qt, however the ability of adding capabilities and features beyond Symbian that has us excited.”
