Question Microsoft Office

Please Login to Remove!

Any word on when blackberry will offer microsoft office for mobile? I've seen some stuff on BG that says OS 4.5 might have it.

I doubt it. Docs to Go, maybe. But not Office.

Moving to the Rumor Mill.

MS Office on my BB I shudder at the thought, would be handy at times but docs to go will suffice

E-Office is a great suite of apps, the printing/faxing is definately a feature that is unique in the office editor.

That's the only reason I haven't gotten it yet is because eOffice is way too costly. I like docs2go though.

There's still a difference in paying a discounted price (let's saying $20, even) than not having to pay for basic functionality in a few months, no? I guess it could be debated until we're blue in the face, but the fact of the matter is that only a small number of people will edit documents on the go (for now, no pun intended) and giving away a product that does this sure beats having to pay for something else.

You do realize.... that if you leave a blank Word or Spreadsheet document on your memory card..... you can edit that document and save it as a different name using the free version of Docs2go???? ;)

Yes it is expensive and I don't like the way that it handles attachments. The attachments download somewhere on my BB and I have a hard time finding them. I also get a lot of emails from dynoplex everytime I try to open an attachment. I really wish that I had looked into doc2go before I purchased the eOffice.

I can't find a copy of Docs2Go Premium cheaper than $70.
eOffice is $40. How is eOffice cheaper?

eOffice only dropped their price there a few months ago, probably after the post was made (since the post goes back about 3 months ago....)

eOffice use to be about 80-90 bucks somewhere around there, Docs To Go came along matching eOffice for $70 bucks but it is biult into 4.5, so that is when eOffice dropped there price.

I used the old trial of eOffice... I must say DTG is alot cleaner and smoother.
