Qt Mobility API Features & Target Platforms

Qt Mobility is part of Qt's emerging new APIs.

Although it's obviously targeted for mobile devices, some of the specs are implemented on desktop platforms.

Target platforms supported by Qt Mobility:
  • Symbian S60 3rd & 5th Edition (pretty good)
  • Maemo
  • Linux/X11
  • Windows
  • OS X (Mac)
All target platforms support these features:
  • Service Framework
  • Bearer
  • Publish/Subscribe
  • System Information
Messaging feature is "half complete", on Symbian S60 the spec is partially implemented, on Linux/Mac it needs QMF, Windows needs Outlook & MAPI.

Currently, only mobile devices (Symbian S60 3rd Edition and 5th Edition) support these APIs:
  • Contacts
  • Location
Qt encourages independent vendors to develop engines/providers for these specs on desktop systems (Windows/Linux/Mac), however documentation for how to do so currently does not exist.

These APIs are incompletely implemented or non-existent in all platforms:
  • Multimedia
