One of the coolest things about Qt Embedded 4, Qtopia Core 4, is that it has support for keyboard, mouse and screen plugins. Which means easier implementation and deployment of embedded applications across different devices. Mousedriver is usually the touchscreen, and screendriver can be an accelerated framebuffer. Not only that, but Trolltech seperated some of […]
