After the launch of HTC Legend, Sony Ericsson’s Xperia phones and Motorola Milestone, the wait for Nokia’s path breaking N8 was on. The wait ended on April 27, 2010, when the company announced the launch of Nokia N8, company’s latest smartphone that intuitively connects you to the people, places and services that matter most. With the Nokia N8, you can create compelling content, connect to your favorite social networks and enjoy on-demand Web TV programs and Ovi Store apps.
Let’s take a look at some of the cool features of N8;
The Nokia N8 also marks the global device debut of the new Symbian^3 software, featuring several major advancements:
With this announcement, Nokia is also offering developers a new platform to innovate on. The Nokia N8 comes integrated with Qt, a software development environment that simplifies the development and makes it possible to build applications once and deploy across Symbian and other software platforms. Nokia has also made the simple to use Nokia Qt SDK available, in its initial beta, to enable developers to start realizing the potential of Qt.
The phone is currently priced at EUR 370 and as far as Indian market is concerned…the phone has already started shipping to the customers who booked it.

Just checked out this great tutorial and thought of sharing it with you guys.
This tutorial guides you in getting started with Qt application development. The document covers the following topics: downloading and installing the Nokia Qt SDK, creating your first project, running it in the simulator, and deploying the application to a device.

I am a mobile developer and received an email from Forum Nokia, inviting for a workshop to learn how to create Widgets and more about QT.
This workshop is on 16th June in Mumbai and we just have two days for registration. So just wanted to know if any one knows more about this workshop or has attended any such workshop before.
If anyone can share their experiences or thoughts in the same regards?
The link to their website that I received in the email was: http://www.codeofpartnership.com/agenda.html
Thanks in advance..

Nice looking phone. Nokia N8 has great specs too. The Symbian software , unfortunately , is being step-over by the newly released Androids. Not sure though if Nokia will jump on the Android bandwagon to get back its lost market share.

i think Nokia will have to do somehting about symbian or else it will lose out to the iphone, android and blackberry!
