I think the whole point of this takeover is Qtopia. Yes, the Nokia N800
series internet tablet uses Maemo (based on gtk). Correct me if I'm wrong
but aren't most of Nokia's cell phones running Symbian? Maybe buying
Trolltech is cheaper than continually licensing Symbian? Plus they have a
hell of lot more control in the direction of Qtopia & Qt.
