Qt Everywhere?

After the latest changes in Nokia, I was kind of scared that “Qt Everywhere!” like printed on my nice bathing towel won’t really happen any more, at least not as fast as thought.

Now I got my new phone, Android based, and tried out Necessitas. And I must say, I am impressed. Just downloaded Ministro from the Android Market (yes, just like that, no rooting, no hacking, nothing) and the hello world demo and it runs :P

I hope this project will really take off even more as soon as a stable Qt 4.8 is around! And that we see some KDE fame there, too. Really, this is not to be underestimated. The Android market share grows and the current market policies allow open source there, unlike what we see for the WP7 or iOS systems.

Already now: Thanks to the Necessitas team, great work! Really necessary ;)

    1. Actually not. I think MeeGo with Qt as primary development environment gets a lot more interesting, if your Qt applications run there and on Android devices. MeeGo might be only a small market segment, but if you get your MeeGo app for free if you develop it with Qt for Android, why not provide it for MeeGo, too? Or the other way around.
