Well, for one thing, there's tens of thousands more programs that run on the Pandora than the iDevices. Know why? Emulators. C64, various Apple computers, Oric, Tandy, Spectrum, Windows 3.1, so many more. So yeah, you can run Microsoft's word processor.
And I haven't even mentioned all the game systems you can emulate.
You can emulate all sorts of things on a jailbroken iOS device.. I don't see why people consider this off the table. Yeah, maybe it breaks the warranty, but so does running your Pandora in OPP5. And I'm sure no one wants to hear this, but with Pandora you're more likely to exercise that warranty.
I for one would not want to run a word processor that worked in Windows 3.1, especially not while suffering DOSBox's emulation overhead.
