QUIt demos on Android

Qt 5.2 Beta was released on yesterday, whey! As many of us know already, Qt 5.2 will be the first Qt version with an official Android support. Qt 5.2 will also contain quite a big changes on the UI side, with the new V4 JavaScript engine and the Scene Graph renderer. So how well does this beta run existing Qt Quick 2.0 applications on Android?

We have made numerous UI demos in the past so I decided to install Qt 5.2 beta into Nexus 7 (2013) and put it into test! Here's video:

Overall I'm impressed by the quality. Qt Creator is able to setup Android projects with ease, things work and performance is very good. What more could one ask?

I encourage everyone to test this beta and report bugs so we'll get things close to perfection before 5.2.0 release, due by the end of November. Keep calm and hack on!
