Getting Started with the Trolltech Greenphone SDK
It would be great to explore many other Qtopia-specific features in more detail, such as the QCop IPC mechanism for communication across processes, the XML-based theming engine, the secure execution environment (SXE), plus all the phone-specific features, for starters.
Qtopia provides a lot of advantages for the embedded developer designing applications for mobile phones.
Besides the emulation environment, the code compatibility with desktop applications and the natural intuitive application framework, I find that Qtopia does something better than other embedded environments do—it helps put the fun back into programming.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
