Nokia announced increase adoption of Qt with additional licensing option

Today Nokia announced that their Qt cross-platform User Interface (UI) and applications framework would be available under the Lesser General Public License (LGPL) version 2.1 license from the release of Qt 4.5 that is scheduled for March 2009.

In addition, Qt will now be available from a new source over at www.qtsoftware.com. This move to LGPL licensing will provide open source developers with more permissive licensing than GPL and also increase flexibility for the developers. The Qt source code repositories will be made publicly available and will encourage contributions not only from desktop but also embedded developer communities. These changes are meant to drive developers to evolve the Qt framework.

This will be the third version of this product, indicating a good level of success for a once-perceived niche market. This time they are pimping it out with a full keyboard.

The model number is the N810, so really it will just be an upgraded version of the N800. The internet tablet will have the Mozilla browser, Skype, a camera, music player, oh, and the best part, they are integrating the GPS hardware and a bunch of pre-loaded maps.

Samsung SWD-M100 WiMAX MID video demo

It was at Intel's booth rather than Samsung's at Mobile World Congress where we got our hands on the Samsung SWD-M100 Mobile Internet Device, and while the unit they had to play with was mysteriously non-functional, the hardware is certainly promising.  Hidden behind a 4.3-inch touchscreen there's a full slide-down QWERTY keyboard, together with WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.0 and - its crowning glory - WiMAX.

Sprint XOHM WiMAX details leak

Sprint's Xohm website, a work-in-progress detailing much of the carrier's plans for its high-speed WiMAX network, has been unearthed.  While much of the site uses dummy filler-text, it does confirm 2-4Mbps download and 1-3Mbps upload speeds, as well as that access will be both by the day and by the month, with no binding contracts or cancellation fees.  Several devices are also mentioned as being available from the September Xohm launch.
