I'm not sure what you are asking for now.

I don't think that developing native applications for two platforms is
very effective at this stage.

If you want to cover more platforms, then you can choose completely
different route. Try to create something like WebHelp but with UI
suitable for smaller screens and then use PhoneGap to target multiple
platforms (http://phonegap.com/).

You should spend more time on researching possible ways to delivering
documents with good UX on small devices now. Not only thinking about
what can be done, but also looking to existing software like eBook
readers, mobile Web and PDF readers. Create lists of features missing in
those products and things that sucks. Then you can create list of
requirements for your application. After you have this, you should start
thinking about possible implementation strategies.
