KDevelop: New Qt Based Smartphone with KDevelop SDK

A new Linux based smartphone by Samsung was announced recently. The SCH-i519 phone runs a Linux distribution produced by Mizi Research Inc. The user interface is based on Qt, and according to their web site, the SDK they provide is based on KDevelop! Congratulations to Trolltech for yet another phone using Qt, and to the KDevelop team for producing the best IDE available on Linux!


Wanna get one of those :)

During my visit to SoftExpo 2003 in Seoul this month I met the GUI developer team for this device (and of course got to play with it for a while). A very ambitious and talented group.

One of the interesting things I learned is that the device uses Qt Free Edition / X11 rather than Qt Embedded.

It also has a very nice MPEG3 video player.

If the device does well in China we may very well see a US / European version . . .

Updated the article... There is a Qt Free Edition / Embedded, btw.

Just use Beta 2 or CVS.

Not a PDA... i have also played with the specially designed China Unicom phone (Samsung, CDMA) and I am not as impressed. It is big and cumbersome and it doesn't have video features. Maybe it can do more once they decide to use Qt/Embedded instead of suffering with X11.

More interesting though, A-760 is going pretty well for the GSM market; still not a tri-mode phone but coming next year.

However, Linux is rockin!! now, there are three phones in the market in China and more to come next year for sure.

Has anyone seen a Qtopia phone yet? I think this is next step from Trolltech.
