[Interest] Something funny. QAccelerometer

AFAIR, simulator's primary (available out of the box at least) "pseudo
environments" were Symbian and Maemo 5. With both systems being in zombie
state even at the time of Qt ownership transfer, there's a chance that
Nokia didn't see any benefits in keeping the project and decided not to
give it to Digia. I'm not even sure simulator's code was open-source like
the rest of Qt-related stuff.

It'd be rather sad if the tool is really gone because it gave the
opportunity to test [some] mobile-specific things without the inconvenience
of debugging the application on real devices or in emulators.
