I think that's just entirely too sophisticated an application for a smartphone.

Also, I imagine it would be frustrating to use on such a small screen with limited controls.

Office applications aren't very demanding, but graphic design requires more horsepower to run the apps, and also benefits for larger displays and a good mouse / trackball / tablet. Most serious graphic designers I know wouldn't work on a laptop, much less a smartphone. They like their dual 24" displays, etc.

For the graphics work I do for Phone Scoop - which isn't very intensive at all - I can't imagine doing it on a smartphone. Even if the application was really good, I can't imagine the typical task taking me any less than 10x longer than it would on a laptop. That would be a massive waste of time.
