New Smartphone Could Give Nokia's Stock a Boost {BloggingStocks}

Sep 8th 2010 10:48AM

The new Nokia phones may well be quite nice (N8, E7, E7, C6-01), but the under-reported news regarding Qt development is KEY. Nokia owns Qt, which is a cross development framework allowing developers to CODE ONCE for multiple platforms. Nokia has ported this to both Symbian (^1, ^3, ^4) AND Meego. It will also allow porting to other OS' including Android, WP7, WebOS. In essence, it's a very efficient and resource effective way for developers to work. With Nokia's revised T&C's with developers to the OVI store...the hi quality app population will be very interesting to monitor going forward. Qt allows for fast, visually intensive, Memory efficient app developments that will work well in portable/embedded devices and/or systems. It's used by HP, Adobe, Skype, TI, Google, Thomson Reuters, European Space Agency...to name some noteworthy organizations. It was launched in finished form this August on Symbian and Meego...this is bigger news than just one handset, IMHO. The N8 does come with the Qt libraries pre-installed.

Consumer Reports confirms iPhone 4 antenna problems -- and so do we {Engadget}

@GregPenhaligon. Would you feel the same way if it is found out through court mandated discovery that Apple knew of this defect and still chose to market the antenna as a superior attribute? Would you consider this fraud or just let it pass? I only ask because two things seem very clear: 1) Steve Jobs marketed the "bumper" at the WWDC, 2) the field measuring application was removed from IOS 4 just prior to the iPhone 4 launch.

Just asking.
