    Question Difference between Maemo and MeeGo?

    I need more detail regarding Maemo and MeeGo plus Qt Support on that.

    Right now there are only 4 Maemo Based Devices are available
    1) Nokia N810 WiMAX Edition - Maemo
    2) Nokia N810 - Maemo
    3) Nokia N800 - Maemo
    4) Nokia N900 - Maemo 5

    First 3 devies does not have Qt Support. 4th No ie Nokia N900 - Maemo 5 has support of Qt. Now few queries are here
    1) Is Nokia N900-Maemo is actually MeeGo device
    2) If I develop any Qt app then can I publish that app on Ovi store for this handset.

    And apart from that somewhere I seen there is another MeeGo based device named "Aava Device". Is this device has support of Qt Framework?

    Kindly looking forward for any information. And let me know if anything is not fully clear.

    Re: Difference between Maemo and MeeGo?

    All Maemo 5 (N900) and Maemo 4.1 (N810) and Maemo 4 (N800) have Qt support.
    There are no MeeGo device from Nokia announced so far.
    At the moment you can publish Qt application to target Maemo 5/N900 in Ovi Store.
    On the other hand, AAVA Mobile Oy is a Finnish company, which created a prototype running Moblin 2.1 operating system.

    Thanks for the quick reply....
    but in "Forum Nokia Devices" Section, there is mentioned Qt support only for Maemo 5/N900 NOT for other 3 devices N810, N800, N810 WiMax ?

    There is no Development Frameworks list under General section for N810 and N800, but this is not enough to make a conclusion that Qt support is not available for Maemo 4 and Maemo 4.1 platforms.

    Re: Difference between Maemo and MeeGo?

    Agreed, but how can we ensure that these devices has Qt Support, I mean how can you say that these devices has support of Qt. If we have Qt support for these devices that means Forum Nokia Devices section has incorrect information regarding the device specification.

    Plus if you filter only Qt based devices then also you will not get these devices ie N810 & N800 will not be there, this means they dont have Qt Support:

    All Qt Based devices: http://www.forum.nokia.com/Devices/D...ons/?filter=qt

    All Maemo Based devices: http://www.forum.nokia.com/Devices/D.../?filter=maemo

    N810 and N800 are legacy devices and not supported by Ovi Store any way.
    The way to ensure Qt support is there is to run apt-cache search libqt on the device.

    Is there any other way to check Qt Support for these devices, Actually what I was thinking if I get a new Nokia N810 or N800 and after running apt-cache search libqt If there is no support for Qt then it would be weired for me. Before buying any Maemo device I want to ensure that it Qt Support as we already do for other platform or OSs.

    And ultimately we are not on any satisfactory conclusion from start to end... I mean we dont have information regarding Qt Support for Maemo Devices N810 and N800.

    I have also sent a mail to ForumNokia regarding this and waiting for the reply. But thanks for all your discussion. I hope if you have any other information you'll share with me.

    N810 and N800 only have a community supported 4.5 version of Qt (=not Ovi compatible).
