Today publishers can distribute free and paid apps via Ovi Store for Nokia N900 and Nokia N8, because Qt is pre-installed to the device
Qt Smart Installer
Developers must bundle Smart Installer SIS with their SIS file
Smart Installer checks if Qt is present in the device, and which version. If updates are required, Smart Installer fetches the proper libraries.
Will support Symbian 5.0, 3.2 and 3.1 devices
In future, smart installer will be needed for N8 (when Qt4.7 comes out)
