Developing for WeTab
Have somebody already tried this device? Is there an opportunity to develop on Qt for this tablet?
I'm not sure which OS it uses.
If it runs meego, for sure you can run Qt on it.
However I read something about WeTab supporting android apps :/
I read about meego. It's first device on meego, is not it?
It runs meego and I'm not heard about Qt for Meego in open access :) Maybe it will be available at that moment, when Nokia will release the first device on the Meego. Or I'm wrong and Qt for Meego already exist?
From "product details":http://wetab.mobi/en/product-details
- Application suport: "WeTab Meta-Store integrates multiple Stores, Support for native, Java, Linux, Adobe AIR® and Android Apps"
- The developer community consists of ... the developers who are developing the MeeGo.
- What operating system does the WeTab have? ... Meego
It says it runs native linux apps, which can include upstream Qt, afaik.
The problem with the WeTab is the missing multitouch layer in the factory version. We
spent 2 weeks correcting for these shortcomings and were able to put a Qt 4.7.0
version to work with multitouch and pretty much everything else on the WeTab.
The software packages are available under:
With these packages you can use the standard multitouch framework that is already
built-in into Qt and RX71 applications for example should work out-of-the-box.
We also contacted the developers of the WeTab software stack in order to share our patches so they can put them into the mainstream release. Let's just wait what they

Great! thank you!
@mwawro00: Sorry, but what is RX-71?
AFAIK the RX-71 is a speculative handheld device planned/developed by Nokia that
was meant to run the Maemo platform, which now is part of the MeeGo platform.
The only "working" multitouch device in the Qt SDK is exactly this device. Well, was
this device, since now Qt 4.7 can use XInput2-based multitouch devices :)
Hum, ok. thanks.
Small update: We put the patches online (same URL as the binaries). The manufacturer of the WeTab is also looking into it.
