Nokia has made available an official Microsoft Office
Mobile app for owners of Symbian smartphones.
Until now users could only get the full Microsoft Office
Mobile app on Windows Phone. Starting from today, the
Nokia 701, Nokia 700, Nokia 603, Nokia E7, Nokia X7,
Nokia C7, Nokia Oro, and Nokia C6-01 will also get this
much sought after collection of productivity apps. Users
can get them using the Nokia Software Update tool on
their smartphone, or connecting their phone to the Nokia
Suite on their PC.
Office Mobile apps will also be available from the Nokia
Store in a few weeks.
In February this year, Nokia announced that OneNote, Lync
2010, Document Connection and PowerPoint Broadcast were
available for Symbian. Now, Word Mobile, PowerPoint
Mobile and Excel Mobile are the latest applications to
join the suite of Microsoft Apps built especially for the
latest Symbian smartphones.
With Word mobile, users can save or send documents while
preserving tables, SmartArt and charts, or the pinch/zoom
functionality to view and edit documents.
In PowerPoint mobile, users can edit presentation texts
and speaker notes, or use the Outline view to browse
through slides. With Excel mobile, users can create
charts, or insert formulae and view rich data and charts
Another onvenient feature of Office Mobile is that it
gives users a single view to documents ? whether they?re
stored on a phone as files, as email attachments, or on a
company SharePoint site.
The specific apps were developed, certified and tested by
Owners of Nokia N8, Nokia E6 or Nokia 500 will also have
the chance to get official apps for Office later, Nokia
said. The Nokia 808 PureView will also come with all
these apps when it begins selling.
