I know there's a lot of developers in the country that will rejoice with the news below from Nokia. I think it will really help a lot to increase mobile development of Nokia Symbian's platform worldwide. I hope this will also challenge the creative juices of the mobile developers with the release of SDK. Here's the full details from Nokia on their newest QT SDK.

Nokia announced last May 4. 2011 the release of Qt SDK 1.1 offering one integrated development environment for creating both consumer applications on Nokia’s Symbian platform as well as for desktop applications such as Windows 7, Mac OSX and Linux.  Using the Qt SDK to build their apps, developers have a complete, easy-to-use tool cutting app creation time in half for Nokia touch-screen devices.

Within the release of Qt SDK 1.1, is Qt Quick, a new UI creation kit that benefits both graphic designers and application developers.  Designers can create fluid, animated user interfaces with complete project and code editing support for developers to then implement into the overall application.  This speeds up the development process further bringing applications to market quicker.

Qt Quick also includes QML, a CSS & JavaScript-like language, that makes UI development for touch screens much easier to implement. In addition to Qt Quick, the Qt SDK 1.1 includes map and navigation features, imaging features for camera and photo gallery access, notification API plug-ins and other enhancements that enable developers to provide access to user content on the device.

“Developers are seeking to provide high quality, graphically rich applications to stand out in ever increasing crowded application stores”, said Purnima Kochikar, Vice President, Forum Nokia. “With this new version of the Qt SDK, designers and developers can work together to achieve this quicker and more effectively.”

Nokia and Qt SDK 1.1 - Large consumer audience for developer's apps
Consumers are downloading more than 5 million apps per day in Ovi Store, Nokia's on-device app store. With today’s release of the Qt SDK 1.1 developers can now target more than 100 million Nokia devices (75 million of which are touch devices) in addition to the 150 million future Symbian smartphones Nokia intends to sell such as the newly announced Nokia E6 and Nokia X7. It is also possible for Qt app developers to re-use code to speed up the creation of apps on Maemo and the future MeeGo device Nokia will ship this year.

Developers can now download the Qt SDK 1.1 at http://forum.nokia.com/qt or http://qt.nokia.com

I can still remember how hard to code without SDK unless you are really a hardcore programmer. I'm really happy to try out this new SDK soon and hopefully be able to create new programs/applications as well that will be really helpful for mobile users. Hope you can download this SDK and let me know of your feedback on it as well?
