Nokia has been kicking developers around for the past couple years.
and then developers were promised that Qt would allow great portability. Qt showed great potential.
Now, when developers started to invest considerable time with Qt, Nokia sends mixed signals or releases statements that are plausibly deniable about their commitment to Qt and Symbian's future.
Elop issued the burning platform memo to condemn Symbian, instead of allowing staff to work through the Symbian UX issues.
Recent releases and updates have shown considerable improvement with Symbian UX issues, just when the CEO gives a strategy to turn the big Nokia ship into the Microsoft vortex or whirlpool.
Developers need Qt as the life raft or life jacket to help them stay afloat in these turbulent waters.
Nokia should get Qt to be supported on WP and S40 phones.
Without any such concrete action from Nokia, most developers will move to Android or another platform.
