In the NYTimes review of the new Pearl yesterday, they mentioned that you can edit Word and Excel on it. I've never heard of that ability before and don't have it on my 7130C.

Does anyone know if this is an upgrade to the OS which we can get for the 7100 series? Or is it an additional program added to the Pearl (which we may be able to get)?

I thought the article said you CAN'T edit word and Excel. There is a product by Dynoplex called eOffice that will allow you to edit them, however.

Excerpt from the article:

This BlackBerry talks to e-mail systems just as its predecessors did. Corporate worker bees get real-time e-mail synchronization with their PCís back at the office. If youíre not a cubicle dweller, you receive a copy of each incoming message on the phone (up to 10 accounts), but you donít get the wireless synchronization of your mail folders. You can open PDF and PowerPoint attachments, and even edit Excel and Word files right on the phone.

Go to NYTimes.com and search blackberry pearl for the article which was written yesterday.

Not stock, I don't care what the article says, it won't happen. With Dynoplex's E-software yes you will be able to do so though.
