This would tie in nicely for Nokia should they ever make another […]

| October 7, 2011 | 50 Replies

With Nokia’s Ovi Store (now Nokia Store) reported to supposedly deliver 160% more downloads per app than Apple’s App Store (and possibly well over 9 million daily downloads now) it would be quite understandable why other developers may want a piece of this action. There’s certainly an audience there willing to buy great quality apps. […]

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