I've written a thousand word essay (on digital convergence :) ) on my iPhone 
during a very long long long car trip, if that counts for anything. (also to 
prove a point to a teacher, about the very subject!).

The battery life of mobile devices is amazing compared to that of laptops and 
the like - if you give users the experience they are looking for (a decent word 
processor), then you already have the portability, battery life and nearly 
always on handiness of said mobile device working for you. And if Regular Joe 
McJoeson downloads "LibreOffice for Android", and thinks "oh hey, this is 
pretty cool", and say if there was a non intrusive "LibreOffice: for Windows, 
Linux and Mac" screen in the loading process, they would be more interested in 
the desktop product. Getting a presence on the mobile platform could really get 
LibO out there, as mobile apps have a much lower "effort level" to install. 
Press a button and its done, unlike the desktop app, which is rather large and 
daunting to someone who just bumped into it. 

Just my 2 sporebucks.

The legal profession is hardly a good precedent for technology
innovation :-)

Ask how many 15 year olds have drafted an essay on their cell phone.
That would be a much more realistic test of the future.
