It seems to me that the gnome, too, decided that GTK isn't the right toolkit to create attractive applications for a mobile environment -- hence Clutter. And, of course, Qt isn't just a toolkit, it's way more that than, and Nokia actually, while using Qt, switched toolkits a couple more times, from QWidget-based DUI (might be mistaken about the official name, we used it for Fremantle office on the N900) to libmeegotouch to Meego QML Components.
Having used it, I have to say that libmeegotouch in particular was a travesty of everything that makes Qt so wonderful to work with. Bad documents, ghastly performance, horrible API.
