Default Nokia sells off Qt to Digia, which will soon support Android, iOS, and Windows 8



Nokia has announced that it has sold off Qt, the companyís open-source cross-platform application and user interface framework, to Digia, a software company in Nokiaís home country of Finland. Digia actually acquired Qtís licensing business last year, so this move brings them both back under the same roof. As part of this announcement, Qt has announced its intentions to officially support Android, iOS, and Windows 8.

The name Qt might not be immediately recognizable to consumers, but is used by a number of high profile companies like Adobe, Amazon, Google, HP, Lucasfilm, Microsoft, RIM, Samsung, and even Walt Disney Animation Studios to power mobile and desktop applications like Maya, Photoshop, Skype, and VLC media player.

Qt was originally developed by Trolltech, which Nokia acquired in 2008. Approximately 125 employees will be moving over from Nokia to Digia, and the fifth major release of Qt is expected in the near future. Nokia, for its part, continues to focus on Windows Phone.

Have you ever tried using Qtís tools?

Yeah Qt is pretty sweet.

Good to see it getting into some kind of lifeboat before Nokia's inevitable bankruptcy.
