As it was explained at the conference, the code used in one will be used in
the other, so we won't have two suites. As for UI improvements we need to
make them in an incremental way. No one will change the UI overnight, it
simply is not realistic.

The problem is that mobile platforms use completely different UI
toolkits and also have completely different UI needs etc. For now, the
best I could imagine on mobile platforms would be a capable ODF
document viewer (unlike the existing viewers for Android).
Anyway, on the whole I'd agree to the notion that we need a mobile,
touch-oriented version of LibreOffice to stay afloat. Since porting to
new toolkits/new UI paradigms is a huge pain, I think the best would
be to see if there is a company stepping forward with a plan on how to
make money from free software here... I don't know if I see this
getting far without corporate support. I know that SUSE's heavily
involved in TDF already, but even if they went head-on into such a
project, the desktop product would probably stall and they'd still
need more developers.
