Nokia's making big waves in the OpenSource, app dev and social networking front.
This Trolltech bit torn shamelessly from Engadget Mobile - (love that graphic)
"In a move meant to bolster its software development prowess, Nokia just announced the acquisition Trolltech. Who's Trolltech? Well, its software can be found in some 10 million devices. In fact, Trolltech's Qt is used by such familiar applications as Skype, Google Earth, and Photoshop Elements while their Qtopia was spotted on a hacked Archos 5 series earlier this month. By acquiring Trolltech's software development frameworks and application platforms, Nokia hopes to help developers create Internet applications that work on PCs and across Nokia devices. Specifically, Nokia claims that the move will "further increase the competitiveness of S60 and Series 40."
In other words, this helps Nokia connect you and your applications across PC's, mobile devices, etc. - and it gives a ray of hope to folks who've waited a long time for a Symbian overhaul/upgrade. But wait - there's more - beyond the acquisition of Jaiku and NavTeq, now there are the Facebook rumors. Finns rock.
Anything that creates a simplified cross platform mobile development landscape is interesting to marketers and will ultimately be for consumers.
Anything that makes mobile UI better is, well, better.
