The Qt SDK is the easy-to-install and use development environment for creating outstanding Qt apps for Symbian phones and the Nokia N9. In this tutorial you'll find out how to download, install, and use the Qt SDK 1.2.1 to create and deploy your apps.
Download and installation
To download the latest Qt SDK, go to the Qt SDK download page. It contains more details about the SDK including the system requirements.
Each installer is available in both offline and online versions. The offline version includes the entire Qt SDK, while the online version downloads the software during the installation process. If you encounter problems with the online installer on a corporate network, use the offline installer instead.

Once you have downloaded your choice of installer run it in the usual way to install it on your computer.
