Wait a sec... wasn't that because Nokia bought a highly valuable toolkit, got a lot of testing and probably even bug fixes "for free" from the community, had a gazillion of Qt developers just waiting to unleash their creativity on Nokia phones... and then decided NOT to use it by going Windows mobile exclusively? Wasn't THAT the reason they failed with Qt?

I am not a market analyst though, so sorry for my very uneducated perception of the situation ;)

Anyway, seems to be a good deal though ;)
