    For Symbian we have Qt mobility which is not applicable for desktop Qt.
    For more help http://qt.nokia.com/
    in one word the language is same but some APIs are different

    Qt Mobility is for accessing mobile device specific functions.
    So in practice not all APIs are different. Plus if you use the Simulator for testing you can of course access Qt Mobility stuff in desktops.

    If you are new to mobile Qt development, I suggest you look into Qt Quick. For example, see the eLearning material in qt.nokia.com.
    You can start off here: http://qt.nokia.com/developer/learni...r-c-developers
