Yes. Actually WebHelp could be in theory used directly, but UX of
WebHelp will not be very good on small screens. Thus it would be better
to create application that will provide its own touch-friendly interface
for working with ToC, index and search. Only real content should be
displayed using embedded web browser component.

Of course, if documentation will be deplyed as .apk it has to be built
each time using Adroid SDK or what's the name of this beastie.
