You act as though Nokia tells its employees more-meaningful/less-spun
stuff than Nokia tells to us on the outside. That's not how corporations
work and it's certainly not how Nokia's current "leadership" works; they
spin everything they say, for internal as well as external consumption.
Internal spin is done because a corporation usually wants to keep the
workers quiet, working, and not causing trouble or diminishing the value
of a property that the corporation might want to sell off. In other words,
for example, even if Nokia already had the contract signed, they would
be very unlikely to tell us or the workers that Qt development had been
sold off until the deal was very near closing; look at the very recent
So what's going to happen?
You know how to reach an accurate answer here and the answer is actually
no different than when we started first discussing this when Elop came from
Microsoft to throw the Molotov Cocktail onto the oil platform: just ask yourself:
"Given Nokia's current complete lack of need for QT and given Microsoft's
desire to suppress cross-platform efforts, what will Nokia do with Qt?"
(And that was a rhetorical question; there's no need to answer it in public
here on the lists.)

I hate to bump this without something substantial to say, but wasn't the reason we stopped discussion to wait for an official statement from Nokia? They've had the weekend + 2 business days, and still nothing official has been released.
Have any of you Nokia devs learned anything and are able to share it?
I also don't agree with the recent subject change to "OT". This is very much on topic if you are intested in Qt's future.
