Qt & Windows Phone 7
Qt will be compatible with Windows Phone 7 ?
This may be slightly a difficult thing. As you may be aware, Windows Phone 7 as an application development ecosystem is very much like the iPhone back in the very early days: You must use the .Net platform to develop applications for it, and unless Microsoft takes another stance on that topic, it is likely to be very difficult to get Qt on there. Not impossible, obviously, just difficult. Ask me, it’s a strange decision anyway, it’s something all the many smartphone platform developers have tried, and they’ve all had to open for native app development at some point, it strikes me as decidedly strange that Microsoft has chosen that path as well, even though it’s so clear from experience that it simply doesn’t work.
trusktr: Digia has people looking into supporting Qt on WinRT or whatever it is called now. We even showed a very early demo at devdays last year. From my limited windows foo that should help with windows phone 8, too.
Any help is appreciated:-)
PS: Qt runs fine on Windows 8 in desktop mode, but that is of course not an option for arm-based windows 8 devices or phones.
