Well, the N9 skin is quite close to many Android devices.   I faintly 
recall seeing some docs on creating your own skins as well.

Are you saying that Simulator will no longer be supported in Qt 
Creator?  Is it dropped already in 2.6?

For me personally the Simulator was quite good.  It was fast, comparable 
to the iPhone simulator.  The QEmu based Android simulator is much slower.
