Qt Acquired From Nokia by Digia; Coming on iOS, Android and Windows 8
Digia has just entred an agreement to acquire Qt software technologies and Qt business from Nokia. Nokia is in a phase to sell off Qt completely to enable Qt’s use on iOS, Android and Windows 8
“We are looking forward to welcoming the Qt team to Digia. By adding this world class organization to our existing team we plan to build the next generation leading cross-platform development environment.” said Tommi Laitinen, SVP, International Products, Digia. “Now is a good time for everyone to revisit their perception of Qt. Digia’s targeted R&D investments will bring back focus on Qt’s desktop and embedded platform support, while widening the support for mobile operating systems.”
As of now, Qt’s Symbian ambition is unknown, and Qt 5 is due for a September release.
