[Interest] Well there goes Nokia

What if Jambi made a comeback? (Ambi - Ambidextrous development environment) 

What if Qt got a HTML5 renderer?

I am slated to perform the HTML5 for my company work this autumn, albeit for Qt 4.8. This way, any Qt app can render to a HTML5 canvas using QPA. 

Since Google has not extended android to general PC development, there could be some interest in having a platform agnostic development platform which would compete with say, .NET... Users could select to be dependent on the Java/Davlik runtime or not...

I seriously doubt it, Sivan. What would Google do with Qt? They have two 
interests nowadays: Android and Chrome. One is a Java API, the other is HTML5. 
Qt running on Android is not relevant for them, I think.

They might be interested in the developers themselves, but not for their Qt 
work. So if they were to hire the developers, this would probably detract from 
the Qt project.
