Default Documentation Question.

Please Login to Remove!

Not sure if this question has been posted before (sorry if it has). I am looking at getting the Blackberry Curve 8330. I want something to replace my PDA and cell phone. I like the Curve from what I have seen. My only consern is the need for some type of Documentation such as a Microsft Word. I collect a lot of books, etc. and have a complete list in my PDA which I would like to have on the Blackberry. Does Blackberry have an option for this or would I have to get eoffice? If I have to go with eoffice is it worth it and will it save the word documents on the SD card?

Thanks for any and all help.

Choices for Word are eOffice or DocumentsToGo, now that OS 4.5 for the BB is up and running. Both allow saving to the Media Card.

I recommend that you trial both and make that decision yourself. I believe you will find DocsToGo more seamlessly integrated.

I think DocsToGo holds great promise and is now part of the RIM package. They have been doing business in other handheld markets for some time. eOffice has been around quite a while on the BB specifically.

Thanks. When you say part of the RIM package does that mean it will come standard?

Yes, a standard edition with limited editing will be part of the package.

Extended editing and new doc creation will be part of the premium services.
