Trolltech delivers Qt WebKit

Web beautification for mobile

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Mobile World Congress Cross-platform tools specialist Trolltech has updated its popular Qt framework by integrating the WebKit browser engine.

The move opens up the possibility of easy transfer of popular web applications such as Google Earth and iTunes to millions of mobile devices, particularly Nokia handsets that support WebKit. It also broadens the palette of tools available to programmers interested in Apple's iPhone, given that WebKit is used in the Safari browser.

Trolltech said Qt with WebKit integration enables developers to build common applications for traditional desktops and mobile devices. It also said WebKit complies with the main internet technologies including HTML, XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, SVG and AJAX. The download for Qt and WebKit is available here.

Currently the target of a takeover bid by Nokia, Trolltech first announced its intention to offer WebKit integration in December 2007 and the product has been available on pre-release. The Qt updated was announced at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain

Migration of web applications to mobile devices appears to be a popular theme at this year's MWC with IBM and Movial also announcing products.®
