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.
