Qt Car Mode from Nokia – for Belle devices (new and upgraded) as well as MeeGo-Harmattan (N9)

Back in May 2010 (and possibly even earlier), we got a glimpse of the Qt Car integration goodness (called Terminal Mode then).

You’ll remember this is much better optimized, not only for touch but for car navigation. – bigger buttons, being fonts, so you divert less time looking at the screen and more time concentrating on the road.

Nokia Conversations had a post yesterday about the new Nokia Car mode.

You can see similar map styling to Nokia Maps. At this screen size, you can afford to lose a little map space and have another part indicating Speed/distance.

Since the app is Qt based, it will be available for Belle devices, Nokia 600, 700, 701 as well as the earlier S^3 smartphones for Belle. Also for N9 fans, it will be available for MeeGo-Harmattan too.

The app, written in Qt, will be available for the Nokia 600, Nokia 700, Nokia 701 and earlier smartphones that have been upgraded to Symbian Belle. It will also be available for Nokia N9.

Thanks to amoshydra  for the tip!
