In most ways this environment behaves like the operating system on the device, but with added development tools.

The Maemo platform is a computer architecture platform built on desktop open source components. It’s aimed at enabling applications and innovative technology for mobile handheld devices.


The platform is based on the GNU/Linux operating system and the GNOME desktop. Its finger optimised Hildon UI is customised for the screen size and usage typical for a touch-screen enabled handheld device. The development platform is targeted at innovative developers and organisations creating applications and new technologies for mobile devices. Utilising the Maemo platform, it’s easy to mobilise existing desktop solutions, particularly those based on Qt. The Maemo platform enables various business models, including proprietary application distribution.


Maemo, first introduced in 2005, is one of the core platforms for Nokia’s high-end products. Maemo has reached a level of functionality to provide a full Internet experience in pocket sized devices – with an intuitive UI. The Maemo devices available include the Nokia N800, the Nokia N810 and the Nokia N900.

With the release of the Nokia N900 firmware version 10.2010.19-1, in May 2010, Qt is the recommended development language for Maemo applications. Using the Nokia Qt SDK, which offers a simple installation and eliminates the need for separate SDKs, mobile applications can be developed quickly and easily. Using the Qt APIs for Mobile Development applications can make use of many device features, such as contacts data, location data, and the accelerometers among others.

Alternatively, a native C runtime is available, complemented by officially supported C++ bindings. A complete set of Python bindings are provided by the community. Web developers are supported by the Mozilla Gecko engine and Flash 9. Mono, Java, and Ruby runtimes, among others, are provided by the Maemo community.

To support non-Qt development (or mixed development using Qt and native C or the C++ bindings) the Maemo SDK is available.
