KLines on Nokia XPressMusic 5800

Filed under: General — Dmitry @ 5:50 pm

Hello guys and girls! 🙂

I always felt excited about Qt for S60 port, so I decided to give it a try.

And now I’m excited to see how KLines are running smoothly on my Nokia 5800 🙂
All animations are working, you can see svg theme being used.

Here’s a photo of the device with KLines running:

After I set up all needed tools and SDKs, porting itself was not very complex (mostly commenting out code, yeah). Of course the major pain was that I had to do all this on Windows – I’ve lost my Windows development habits long ago and don’t feel like I want them back 😉

I thought about recording some live video, but my camera is too lamish for that 🙂

For those of you who are interested in trying the ported version on their 5800/n97 devices, here’s the sisx file:

NOTE: You’ll need a qt symbian port libs to be installed on your phone to run it.
Take them here:

NOTE1: I didn’t test it much. I didn’t test it to run on some phone other then mine. It won’t run on symbian 3.x phones. It may crash, it may … well, no warranities 🙂
