I strongly believe in Qt Embedded as a alternative to the Android software stack. We, Genesi, have most of the basic infrastructure done, like accelerated screendriver and opengl. The things that are lacking now are some desktop applications, like a good looking application launcher. I want to encourage all that have some spare time to think about the possibilites in this. Java is available for ARM, so using the Jambi bindings to Qt should be possible. This means a fairly easy transition for Android application developers.

Some useful links related to Java on ARM linux: ... ements.jsp

Also have a look here for ideas/starting points if you want to do things with Qt in C++ directly.

It would be nice to build a complete lightweight desktop with applications in Qt; check the link above for Antico Light for instance.

Like Qtopia but using a different screen driver perhaps ?

Have you considered hacking/forking Opie ( ?
