Software developer Digia this week announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire Qt application framework software technologies and the Qt business from Nokia. Digia becomes responsible for all the Qt activities formerly carried out by Nokia including product development as well as the commercial and open source licensing and service business. Following the acquisition, Digia says it plans to quickly enable Qt on Android, iOS and Windows 8 platforms.

“One of Digia’s key objectives with this acquisition is to improve its position within the Qt ecosystem by further strengthening Qt’s R&D capabilities and expanding its reach on many more platforms than ever before,” the company said in a release.

The company is forecasting the acquisition’s impact on its 2012 revenues to be positive.
