>What is the business advantage of offering the code under GPL?
You shouldn't understimate the publicity advantage provided by this..
Without the GPL offering, Trolltech would only be one software provider among many other, with it everybody in the open-source community know about them.
For Qt, even if they use the GPL code, users may buy support and for the embedded edition I doubt that many phone/PDA providers want to GPL their app so they buy the commercial edition..
