Well, I guess the answer is no kinda. You can get abiword for n800, n810, n810w, but you have to use an alternative to maemo. I think.

I've downloaded Abiword on regular Maemo before. Sadly, that was a while ago. (Only removed it due to lack of space; it worked really well). I believe it is in the extras-devel repository... Gnumeric is also available :)
Not sure if it still works. Probably worth a try!
Another possibility is to install Easy Debian (http://www.internettablettalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=24272), which provides a full desktop operating system (Debian) on the tablet. Don't worry; it sits alongside the existing operating system.
That unlocks the very big world of software available in Debian's repositories, including Java and (of course!) Abiword. It isn't as nice that way since it isn't optimized for the tablet, but it works.
Thanx, Picklesworth... i still didnt get it how do i do it though.... :(
Well - i installed it. works ok. thanx. but it crashed when it has hebrew text in it. :(

Putting in my US$0.02...
You can install Abiword on the N800, but if you don't have an external BT keyboard you can't really do anything with it. The interface has not been fully Hildonized for touchscreen-only use.
