Forum Nokia Transitions To Nokia Developer, Gets A Redesign

The Forum Nokia of yesteryear is no more, and in comes Nokia Developer, Nokia’s brand new portal for their developers across the globe. Along with the change in name comes a brand new design that makes getting to what is important to you much quicker and simpler.

From the post announcing the change:

While this website might look a bit different now, we think you will agree we have made it simpler to understand. Whether you plan to develop and deploy mobile apps using Qt, Web or Java – or if you plan to begin crafting apps for Nokia with Windows Phone – you will notice that it is easy for you to reach any of the mobile development-related resources that you need to do your work quickly and efficiently. As you will see, this is part of an overall movement by Nokia to offer our global developer community a single point of service to design, develop and distribute mobile apps and content to consumers using the latest Nokia phones worldwide.

All the old links still work and any forum.nokia.com link is automatically redirected to the appropriate page on developer.nokia.com.

On a side note, I’m still getting used to the new official Nokia font.

Demo Of Digia’s eBook Application From The MeeGo Conference

Digia is the company that recently acquired commercial licensing and professional services components of Nokia’s Qt software group, so if you can expect someone to make high quality Qt based applications, its them. At the MeeGo Conference, they had a concept eBook application written in QML running on MeeGo tablets, that presents a pretty impressive picture of what you can do with Qt.

The application aims to be not just a eBook reader, but also a recommendation engine and a store to buy books from. While the current application is still in development, it still presents a compelling look at what can be. In terms of deployment, the company is looking at both smartphones and tablets as a market once the application is ready for commercial deployment.

Special thanks to Kari Sievi of Digia for the demo, unfortunately due to the background noise I was forced to do a voiceover later on.
