  16. 16. Qt for Nokia platforms © 2009 Nokia Qt for millions of S60 smart phones S60, the world’s most popular software for smart phones, will become one of Qt’s supported platforms. Qt will be available for S60 as an optional add-on during 2009, preinstalled in devices in 2010. Qt will also be available to the Symbian Foundation. Qt enables the renewal of the developer offering, with improved productivity and developer fun. Qt is also a basis for a facelift of applications and the implementation of a new UI style. Worldwide Market Shares 3Q/2008 Qt for Maemo devices The Maemo platform powers devices such as the Nokia N810 Internet Tablet. Maemo is based on Linux/X11 – one of Qt’s supported platforms. The Maemo community has enabled dedicated Qt support of Maemo in the maemo.org Garage. Nokia services Nokia’s Internet services will run on a Qt and Webkit based common web runtime, across Nokia platforms and desktops.
