The Mobility Project

The new Mobility project here at Nokia is causing quite some excitement. Our goal is to make Qt an even more comprehensive application and UI framework by developing new APIs addressing mobile functionality. Ultimately this will enable rich mobile applications to run across many more platforms… Nokia and non-Nokia platforms! Why didn’t we think of this earlier!

The Project is led by Qt Software but has the good fortune of having senior contributors from S60, Maemo, Services and others from within Nokia R&D. We are adopting an open and flexible approach toward Requirement Input and co-Designing with some of Nokia’s best Architects. Receiving input from the wider development community is viewed as an essential part of the process. Our plan is to release early and release often. The development of the APIs can be followed here on Qt Labs.

We intend to create APIs for many functional areas, beginning with Service Framework, Bearer Management API and soon we will be sharing our work on Contacts API, Messaging and others.

The first API to appear in our public repository is the Service framework. We plan to post the Bearer Management API in the coming weeks and more APIs will follow. Please send your feedback for any API posted in this category to qtmobility at

So please contribute toward helping us make this project a success for 3rd Party developers and join us in celebrating this new project initiative! Lets ‘get mobile’ with the new Mobility APIs!
