Nokia’s latest software development kit for the Qt user interface framework offers two primary benefits: It makes it easier to target applications for Nokia phones, and it makes it easier to recompile code so that it works on Symbian- or MeeGo-based devices.
According to Nokia’s Sebastian Nystrom, “With the Nokia Qt SDK we are putting the power to create beautiful and high-performance applications in the hands of the developer. This beta SDK is a significant step in evolving our developer offering into a unified one that lets developers target millions of devices from the same code base. In the first phase of the beta, we are focusing on testing the cross platform capabilities of the SDK with support for a broad, but initial set of API’s. Over the coming months we will add many more APIs. The beta program is in place for developers to share their experiences with us as we evolve this SDK to meet and exceed their productivity and application creation needs. We are now ready to share our excitement with the developer community.”
