This is a big.
The other online office apps lack features and this field needs some extra competition.

A fully functional office suite on Android would be a great benefit especially for the millions of third world users as well.

And this Libreoffice development on the heel of this news.

I can't see this being of much use on phones, and I don't think tablets will be big in the third world.

Tablet prices is dropping and some have add on keyboards.

OpenOffice.Org is not dead at all ... they are cleaning out the GPL'd code (which was actually not too much and is proving beneficial), and IBM has been hiring guys from the original team at SUN.
