- Microsoft Office for Symbian^3
Being able to work with office documents on their mobile phone is vital for many smartphone users and there are a lot of office applications on the market, mostly paid, to satisfy their needs. There are, of course, some platforms, like Windows Phone, which have a built-in office app, but than again that’s only natural, considering the facts, that Microsoft is behind both products. From now on, though, the mobile version of Microsoft Office is going to be available for free on another platform as well – Symbian. The package includes Word Mobile, PowerPoint Mobile and Excel Mobile, which allow you to work with documents, while their functionality is almost the same as the PC Microsoft Office.
The phones, for which the mobile Office is currently available are: Nokia 701, 700, 603, E7, X7, C7, Oro and C6-01, though you’ll have to install the application through your computer using the Nokia Software Update, as it has yet to appear on the Nokia Store in the next couple of weeks.The Nokia N8, E6 and 500 are going to receive the application a bit later and the Nokia 808 PureView is going to be sold with it pre-installed.
