We can certainly help a little bit here, the business logic can
certainly be reused across all of those platforms.   The UI on the other
hand will probably have to be adjusted for each device.

Long-term, I would like to port Moonlight to the iPhone and the Android
so it would be possible to have the same code base at least across those
two phones, not sure what Windows Mobile 7 will use for its GUI.
