Documents To Go adds Office 2007 support for Palm OS handhelds
DataViz has announced the release of a new version of Documents To Go for PDAs and smartphones that adds support for the most recent version of Microsoft’s Office software suite.
However, while Documents To Go enables users of Palm OS-based handhelds to open and view Office 2007 Word (.docx) and Excel (.xlsx) documents in the new Open XML format, it does not enable the editing of files, as it does for earlier versions of Office. A release to include full editing support for Word, Excel and PowerPoint will be available ‘later in the year’, says DataViz.
Nor does it support Windows Vista, as it relies on the Palm’s Desktop and HotSync software, which do not as yet offer full Windows Vista support. Vista compatibility will be added once Palm has updated its software.
‘Version 10 addresses our top customer request which is support for Word and Excel 2007 files,’ said Kathleen McAneany, Documents To Go business manager. ‘Our customers are our first priority and we are committed to satisfying their expectations in a timely manner while maintaining a best-of-breed solution.’
Documents To Go Premium Edition costs for $49.99, or $29.99 to upgrade from previous versions. It requires Windows 2000 or XP or Mac OS X 10.2 or later.
