Beginning Nokia Apps Development: Qt and HTML5 for Symbian and MeeGo
While media buzz regularly circulates around iPhone and Android, Nokia still leads the pack in terms of world market share. Symbian, for instance, remains the most widely used mobile operating system. With Nokia’s open development platform, the opportunities available for mobile developers to target this vastly popular operating system are abundant and clear.
- Use Qt to target both platforms: Symbian, the most widely used mobile operating system in the world, as well as MeeGo, the Intel/Nokia platform for mobile devices.
- Develop HTML5 applications for both Symbian and MeeGo platforms that will run with little modification on other mobile platforms.
- Novice developers learn the basics of Qt with a mobile slant, giving them the ability to target both desktop and mobile platforms.
