Qt on Maemo/MeeGo

Qt is a comprehensive application and UI framework for developing applications for the Nokia N9 (MeeGo Harmattan 1.2) and the Nokia N900 (Maemo 5) phones. These applications can also be deployed to Symbian smart phones and desktop operating systems without rewriting the source code. If you are developing apps for Symbian, Nokia N9, or Nokia N900 phones in most cases, you can use Qt under the free LGPL licensing option. Qt is cross-platform, and that means that you can use the code from one single code-base and rebuild for all supported platforms.
