Nokia selling QT division to Digia
9 August 2012 by Olav Hellesø-Knutsen
Digia, which bought the Qt commercial developer license from Nokia in 2011, confirmed today that it has bought the Qt software technologies and Qt business from Nokia
Nokia has sold the rest of its Qt operations to the Finnish company Digia. Digia bought Qt's commercial software licensing business from Nokia last year.
It has been a well-known fact for some time that Nokia wanted to let get rid of Qt software technologies. The closure of the Qt Australian office kind of confirmed the rumours, and we know people in the management at the Norwegian head office which was actively looking for new jobs. A maximum of 125 Qt employees from Nokia will transfer to Digia, mostly based in Oslo, Norway and Berlin, Germany.
Digia is planning to enable Qt on Android, iOS and Windows 8 platform in the near future.

Looks like another result of Elop's plan of ridding Nokia of anything unrelated and unnecessary to Microsoft. hopefully QT wasn't "destroyed" before it's given to digia
I think its just rational, there are not enough reasons anymore to hold on qt. Nokia shifted its goals and they should do whats necessary to steer the company towards that goal. Eliminate all those unnecessary attachments, gear up and focus on their new path.
