Can I use native Qt5 C++ library to create for Ubuntu phone. Is there any guide or wiki for it. How can I test my app on real device(Galaxy Nexus). Where I can get recommendations for Ubuntu App Designing, documentation of Ubuntu SDK QML components.

Here you will find everything you need: – ignite Feb 20 '13 at 22:30

The Ubuntu SDK is based on Qt5 respectively QtQuick 2.0 and QML. So you should be able to use all Qt5 libraries. Further information you could find on the Ubuntu SDK, the Qt5, the QtQuick and the QML Documentation pages.

To test your application on a real device you have to wait until the release of the first version of the Ubuntu Phone OS which will be released next week (February 21st). The 3rd generation Galaxy Nexus will support the Ubuntu Phone OS but there will be other devices. For further details have a look at the Ubuntu Wiki and the Ubuntu Operators page.

I can't find a guide, how can I build Qt5 App to Ubuntu. I mean project which uses C++ code – Edward Feb 22 '13 at 8:49
You didn't browse the links aren't you? At the QtQuick Manual there is a link to code samples and here you find examples "Extending QML‌​". – Bornageek Feb 22 '13 at 10:06
I followed the links. I'm asking not how to combine Qt5 code in C++ with QML! I'm asking, how can I build such app for Ubuntu Phone. I have Galaxy Nexus with Ubuntu Phone Developer Preview installed on it. I'm trying to write which will use libraries written in C++. I can build and test this app for Ubuntu Desktop, but I do not know how to build same application for my Galaxy Nexus with Ubuntu Phone on board. – Edward Feb 22 '13 at 11:07
