You can try the kdevelop out of the neo vmware sdk. There are some scripts in there to use to help,
although it is not totally integrated.
You can use QtCreator to edit, but again, it's not integrated and it knows nothing about qbuild,
same as KDevelop.

Qtopia/Qt Extended development was always using an editor, a console and maybe designer.

gdb, or kdbg. Again there is helper scripts and stuff in the sdk.

Needs vmplayer (or virtualbox)
