Depends on the platform:
* on Maemo (Nokia N900) and MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan (Nokia N9),
you just have to manually make a Debian package for your application
* for Android, you can actually use the Qt Creator from the Necessitas SDK
to deploy & debug your PySide application, see:
* for BB10, you just have to roll your own BAR and you are good to go
(not much documentation for this at the moment though)
* for Nemo Mobile, you just have to make a RPM package manually

To just run the application, you can usually get around a full 
package-deploy cycle
by just deploying the application once and then replacing the Python or 
QML part
by some rsync/scp/adb or similar. Enables quite a rapid debug cycle. :)

BTW, my PySide-using applications - modRana[1] and Mieru[2] work & are 
packaged for all of these platforms,
so if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. :)
