Trolltech's QT, Ubuntu coming to Nokia Internet tablets


I’m a fan of the Nokia 800-series Internet tablets, and Nokia is making effort to keep them current. It recently bought Trolltech and is in the process of finalizing the purchase. Trolltech makes the QT applications platform that many devices use, and Nokia is no doubt planning on bringing QT to the N810 and perhaps future tablet devices.

What’s also notable is Nokia is working on Ubuntu support for the N810. Right now it plans of allowing it to run off an SD card, but it shouldn’t be too hard to make it the default OS for the tablet. While I like the Maemo’s OS, Ubuntu’s the flavor of the month, so it would seem prudent to have a access to it.
