Digia to acquire Qt business from Nokia

Last year Finnish software company Digia arranged to acquire the Qt commercial software licensing business from Nokia.

It’s now announced plans to acquire the Qt technology and business from Nokia, which means it’s taking over the entire Qt Project. Digia now plans to bring Qt to the Android, iOS and Windows 8 platforms.

As part of the deal, up to 125 Qt staff from Nokia’s Oslo and Berlin sites will transfer to Digia.

Tommi Laitinen, SVP for International Products at Digia, said “We are looking forward to welcoming the Qt team to Digia. By adding this world class organization to our existing team we plan to build the next generation leading cross-platform development environment. Now is a good time for everyone to revisit their perception of Qt. Digia’s targeted R&D investments will bring back focus on Qt’s desktop and embedded platform support, while widening the support for mobile operating systems.”
