All the current Indie Mobile customers can continue with it under the same terms, we are not offering new any more.

This is due to having overall too little interest (i.e. paying customers) for that product.



I think that is the problem of chicken and egg. Qt is not yet a famous / popular solution for iOS/Android development and therefore people don't interest for the indie license. But without the indie Qt, it is even more difficult to get people's attention to use Qt for cross-platform solution for mobile.
