hm yes since Digia doesn't even sell commercial support for Symbian/Meego they interpret mobile system as not embedded systems.
Maybe one day Google will open the doors for Qt programmers by official supporting Qt on Android...
All OS makers want apps, apps, apps but they want the developers to learn they're language/framework..
Why no Mobile OS Company likes Qt? :(

"Embedded" is an broad term and a moving target that always seems to require clarification. AFAIU Digia wont engage in mobile consumer embedded platform licensing. Android and iOS could be called 'leading embedded platforms' but are a special mass consumer case and dont generate commercial license revenue.
Digia already has public deals with RIM QNX, WindRiver VxWorks and Greenhills Integrity for supporting and selling Qt license to custom device makers on these embedded platforms. Its great that Qt will penetrate these platform markets too. It may be helpful to remember that Qt "Embedded devices" have always had runtime distribution fees per device as well as developer licenses..
Im not expecting Digia to be involved in writing or even licensing any 'official' or unofficial mobile platform ports.
I am curious about Ian's IOS plugin commercial licensing corner case though if anyone can clarify that it could help the discussion.

They aren't embedded.
Digia means QNX, MQX (please!), embedded linux, VxWorks, on PPC, ARM, MIPS, SH, and the like.

Quoted from digia.com<http://digia.com> (digia.com/en/Qt/Digia-is-Committed-to-Qt/<http://digia.com/en/Qt/Digia-is-Committed-to-Qt/>):
Digia is comitted to:
- Advancing the cross-platform Qt promise by supporting leading ( !! ) desktop and embedded platforms
So we doubtless can expect an official Android and iOS port since they're leading embedded platforms?
