Nokia to buy Trolltech
In its latest move in diversifying its business, Nokia announced its intention to acquire Norwegian cross platform framework developer, Trolltech. Nokia hopes the acquisition would speed up its software strategy for both mobile and PC. With the Trolltech development platform, the handset giant can enable third party developers as well as itself to create applications that work on the entire Nokia portfolio, across the internet and PC. Nokia will continue to license Trolltech technology, and continue the development of Trolltech’s products.
