PWI file format import for word processing does not currently exist. PWI is a file format used by Word for Windows CE, and can contain mixed handwriting and text. (Note that there are several other file formats listed at Microsoft's website: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/884182 but I am not reporting them separately because I am not familiar with them.)
Pocket Word format used to be supported by LibreOffice, but the support was dropped in 4.0, IIRC. The code was in xmerge/source/pocketword.

As per comment 1, confirmed. Status set to NEW. Summary edited for clarity. David, if you are not happy with this, please feel free to set status accordingly, as you (or Fridrich / Laurent) know what the true likelihood of writing an import filter for this format will be.
I can tell you what is the likelihood I am going to write the filter :-) But if anyone wants to work on it, sure, why not...
*** Bug 109095 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
in order to rewrite this filter, some .pwi files will be needed: ie. even if it is probably possible to read the old code to create a new filter, if we can not test it on some files, the results will probably be catastrophic....

some .pwi files
I know this is a old bump but if you need some PWI files from an old pocket word instance i had, i have a few i could upload from an old Jornada i used in 2006. I dont know the contents as it has been just so long.

more .pwi files
What ponderious titles these have. i have a slew, if i find someone from the Document Foundation at SCALE 18x once more i will inquire about that upload site that use to exist for odd and unsual files that Libreoffice could not open.
