Ask how many 15 year olds have drafted an essay on their cell phone.

The primary demographic that writes 携帯小説 (keitai shousetsu) is
believed to be females between the age of sixteen and twenty six.

OTOH, the first work to be described as 携帯小説 was written by a thirty
year old male.

On the gripping hand, 携帯小説 isn't really relevant to migrating an
office suite to a mobile device, except as pointer to what people have
already done.

Exactly, and what is likely to happen is production of different form
factors as more clone manufacturers realise there are new markets
opening up for these technologies. I know at least one development
company producing a device that will plug into Wifi, large screen and
keyboard based on these technologies with a sub $50 target retail price.

With any new way of working, by definition, it is innovators and early
adopters that make it safe for the early and late majority to venture
into the water.

Perhaps its only usefulness is in showing why LibO requires a Japanese
UI on any mobile platform it is ported to.

Probably that too but first you have to decide the basic project is
worth doing and then find the resources to do it.
