I'm just staggered there is STILL no Office suite for Android that will 
edit and save odf documents...

There is AndrOpenOffice (which is not by Apache) but it seems to be a direct
port of the desktop version, which makes it unusable in a smartphone. Maybe
in a tablet with keyboard?

The problem with ODF is that only LibreOffice and OpenOffice use it... So
it's not a vendor lock in (like MS file formats) but it's a vendor lock out
(because others refuse or see no point in including it)
LibreOffice also ignores other Open Source file formats like abw or gnumeric
so maybe exchanging courtesies with other office suites would help...

Just my 2 cents...
