I am not very conversant with the other mobile platforms, but maemo supports
python very nicely. One can develop apps in python on the N900 directly!
There are many apps written for the maemo platform in pyqt, these are
portable to android and iphone(may be with a bit of difficulty).
Qtdesigner is a very nice and useful app-designing ide. The code for apps
designed in qtdesigner may be generated using pyuic4 in python..The
