Nokia and Intel's joint announcement at Mobile World Congress brings new value to using the Qt cross-platform application and UI framework.
Nokia and Intel said they will work together to create MeeGo, a Linux platform that supports multiple mobile hardware architectures, including mobile computers, netbooks, tablets, media phones, connected TVs, and in-vehicle infotainment systems.
Qt is MeeGo's native development framework, meaning developers will be able to write MeeGo applications once, then easily port them to this newly expanded range of devices and platforms. Developers can then market these apps through Ovi Store by Nokia and Intel's AppUp Centre.
The first release of MeeGo is scheduled for the second quarter, with compatible devices launching later in the year but According to Valtteri Halla – half of the MeeGo Technical Steering Group (TSG) – the team plans to open the MeeGo repository by the end of March 2010, with a basic source and binary repository to build the platform on the Nokia N900 as well as Intel Atom devices.
