That's neither here nor there. I don't know if the number is official or just a 
rumour. But even if it is, the circumstances are completely different.

I'm not going to give you an analysis of the issue, since I'm not allowed to, 
but if any journalists are around and thinking of reporting that as a sign of 
Qt's value, please think again.

Nokia is a company in financial difficulties today and is divesting of an asset 
is has no use for anymore.
