I agree with this cell-phones are not a way to go for educational
purposes,   the proposal of running sugar on those is only for
familiarization of use of the interface for the adults users, or other not
educational reasons, these reason are not
 in direct relation  with the project.

but i do think that a sugar-like interface could be adapted to cell phones
taking into count the advantages related to ad-hoc communication, but this
would be only an adaptation and it wont have any educational objective, in
my point of view.
