I think "item not found" is the best proof. Thanks OP for the head up!

It's interesting, as I have Polaris Office installed on my Optimus 3D, and it works really well. It came as part of the Promethius ROM.
Sony Xperia S
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
SEMC Xperia X10 Mini Pro
HTC Desire

Lovin' it, lovin' it, lovin' it!

Google does not 'allow' publishing to Play Store. They only scan the app for malicious code and publish. It's up to the users to decide if they want to give the app access to the features is requires or not. Google treats the users of their services like adults that can make their own choices alone, unlike Apple which treats them like children that are allowed to access only what Apple wants them to access.
