Oh, I know (insert Fawlty Towers reference here ), I should've used quotation marks to emphasize the vague reference to the `burning platforms` memo, signed by `yours truly, Stephen Elop`, which was the equivalent of a head shot behind the barn of the Qt-on-mobile along with Symbian and Maemo/MeeGo.

Qt already is being leveraged by RIM for their new platform. I saw a post somewhere about being able to do Python + Qt applications for Blackberry 10. That sounds like a very enticing proposition for me. I wish RIM success with that. How ironic would it be that RIM overtakes Nokia using Qt. Of course the patent war is not goingb tgo be preatty. It feels like we are on the verge of an all out MAD patent war.

True dat. Plus after checking out Blackbery10 it seems like my next smartphone after my N9 dies or is killed(not that it hasn't been shot at enough by i's own maker)unless cannocal comes up with a reall good ubuntu phone(whishful thinking FTW).

And I don't think there's gonna be a patent war because in case you want to enter one you need to have money to spend on it and failop made sure that there wont be any of those left LOL

Patent suits filed against HTC, RIM and Viewsonic in the US and Germany
Long are gone the times when Nokia used patents only to defend itself against patent trolls. Now Nokia has become patent troll itself, Microsoft's own (not even) bottom *****, lumia.

There is very little to like about Nokia nowadays. Bully attitude and bad karma from Microsoft has infected Nokia.

I meant in a mobile world, Qt is pretty much dead. In desktop world, Qt is OK alive and I'd rather see Qt applications in Linux-desktops in the future than GTK-applications. (But maybe most likely Python/Qt applications and I hope Python-JIT-interpreter keeps developing and starts to use modern run-time optimizing compiler techniques.)

But if you are in a business of making applications to a mobile end users, I think Qt is dead. You should not ignore Java/Android, because IMO more and more in the future the markets will be there for both in low-end and high-end smartphones. Only total catastrophe from the Oracle vs Google legal fight over Java can stop Android now anymore.
