Nokia has officially announced the Qt port to Maemo5 Linux and shows it off on Video using the eagerly awaited Nokia N900 .Qt comes to Nokia from the acquisition of Norwegian company Trolltech back in 2008 and it was formerly referred to as Qtopia.Enjoy the video after the jump.
Nokia describes Push N900 as “An unique design, hacking & modding project from Nokia. We want to give designers, hackers, modders, creatives and artists the chance to get their hands on, and heads inside, the new Nokia N900 & the Maemo platform – the most powerful pairing we’ve ever created”
You will have to tell Nokia how you would hack and mod the N900 & Maemo to connect the N900 to something you love. An expert judging panel will be selecting winning submissions and the groups behind the winning entries will receive N900 devices, funding and support to develop their PUSH idea. And once they’re complete, we’ll share them with the rest of the world with a series of installations in Nokia Flagship Stores across the globe.
Already a lot of buzz is present around Nokia N900 and this event is just going increase the buzz by many folds. Just imagine the quality of apps which will be created with a lot of hackers, modders and artist getting together to create apps for the Maemo OS.
Few companies like Hyper and Tinker.it have already got together and started working on a sample project for the PUSH N900 launch event. A project which dealt with a mashup of a Speak ‘n’ Spell, a Rolodex, 80’s radio tagger/Last.fm integration and 3D ViewMaster camera.
A Speak and Spell was used to text a message to a member of the audience, a Rolodex then identified a contact’s details after being manually spun and automatically pulled it up on the phone, an FM radio hack then identified any ‘80’s musician texted to the phone and connected to Last.fm to pull up the relevant cover art as you tuned the radio to a station playing the selected artist’s music, and finally a View-Master which used Nokia N900 to create custom 3D photos.

Submissions for Nokia PUSH N900 are accepted until October 5th 2009. The proposals can be either a video proposal, or a written proposal or even visual proposal. The winning submissions and the winners will be announced on October 25th 2009.
The Nokia N900 has been creating waves across the world ever since the pictures of the first Linux based Phone were spotted on the interwebs. The Maemo based phone was unveiled few days before Nokia World and more details including the price were announced at the event. Nokia had indicated that the price of the phone in various markets will depend a lot on the subsidies possible in the market. But recently there were some reports that Nokia is not going to allow operators to customize the N900 the way they allowed AT&T to customize E71x for example. Some reports even suggested that Operators might reject the N900 due to this restriction. But Nokia has posted an explanation on its Conversations Blog indicating that the reports are not accurate and that Nokia is looking forward to work with operators to provide the best consumer experience.
As discussed in our Nokia World coverage, Nokia N900 is going to be the first Nokia mobile phone to run the Linux derived OS, Maemo.
