Right now, you should just use scratchbox (the old one). Luckily, you
can do most of the development as normal qt desktop app first, which
is quite convenient.

Yes, you can open the project file that is residing in scratchbox home
directory and code/test normally, and occasionally make maemo builds
(x86 sbox / armel) and test in scratchbox / device. Of course you
could use creator just as a top notch code editor and do all the
compiing/testing in scratchbox, but for many applications you won't
need to do much of that, at least in most phases of development.
