Nokia have announced a new Qt SDK for their series 40 Touch and Type phones. Qt is pre-installed on all new Nokia smartphones and downloadable to millions of smartphones people are already using.
“Using the Nokia Qt SDK to build their apps, developers will discover a complete, easy-to-use tool that brings a shortened workflow, simplified development and intuitive UI libraries resulting in 70 percent fewer lines of code, cutting creation time dramatically,” Nokia said in a statement.
For developers, Nokia has now enabled free Java and Symbian signing, in-app purchase, improved revenue share, and advanced developer analytics.
Nokia enabled developers to make in-app purchase, enabling a wide range of app pricing options in Ovi Store such as subscription models, micro-transactions, or “try and buy.”
So will developers take a look at Qt as another potential platform?
Any developers out there thinking about taking a look?

Sony’s new eReaders are missing the mark according to this post from Gadgetlab. No wifi is a serious drawback for a reader device in my book and theirs.
So, what’s Sony doing with these new products that just don’t seem to be designed to meet the competition head on?
SoundGrid 3 has landed with universal support for the iPad, iOS4 multitasking support and more.
Great news for iPad owners.

I updated my 3G to 4.1 a couple of days ago and everything seems to be working fine. There’s a small performance improvement. Not huge, but about enough to make it workable again.
I haven’t heard any horror stories about 4.1 so far, so I’m assuming that no one is having real problems with it.
