Postioning API (Qt 5.2 RC1) has no Android backend?
Someone can confirm/confute that? If that so, how we can work with GPS from Qt 5.1/5.2 application?
I did several test on real Android device using both C++ and QML API: QGeoPositionInfoSource (C++)/PositionSource (QML) always report no supported positioning methods.
There is no Android support for Qt Positioning yet. The creator of the Android port is planning to have it included in Qt 5.3: http://www.kdab.com/qt-on-android-episode-1/

Thanks for reply. I wondering, why those support status tables not included in official documentation. So in 5.2 Positioning API don't work on Android. Is there other ways to use GPS in Qt 5.2 - Android application?
I'm not sure, sorry. If you can call Android API functions, I'd imagine it should be doable.
Have a look at Qt Android Extras, which lets you call Android Java code: http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/qtandroidextras-index.html
GPS support for Android is scheduled for Qt 5.3: http://qt-project.org/wiki/New-Features-in-Qt-5.3
