Yay! Finally an Office suite for Android and the HTC T-Mobile G1. And at 7.99, it won't break the bank.
Here's the press release:
Quickoffice, Inc., the leading global provider of mobile office productivity software, today announced the release of its first Microsoft Office viewer for the Android platform, Quickoffice for Android. The product enables T-Mobile G1 phone users to access, view and manage their Word and Excel files.
With Quickoffice, users can access and view .doc and .xls files sent via a Gmail attachment or stored on a memory card. The viewing features include robust zoom and scrolling throughout the documents, all while retaining the integrity of the original document formatting. Both Word and Excel documents can also be saved to the device directly from Gmail to view later. In addition, telephone numbers, Web sites and email address are hyperlinked directly from Word files, allowing users to quickly call, visit a Web address or email with one touch.
"With the Android platform quickly gaining popularity, it's important that critical functionality for mobile users, such as document viewing, is developed," said Gregg Fiddes, vice president of sales and strategic partnerships at Quickoffice. "We are excited to make this feature available to T-Mobile G1 users with the launch of our award-winning software. We're committed to providing our office productivity solutions across leading smartphone operating systems, and look forward to launching more features and functionality for Android later this year."
Quickoffice for Android also makes it easy for users to manage office files on the go. The built-in Quickoffice 1.0 file manager allows users to easily navigate through folders on their memory card, rename and delete files, view properties and sort documents by name, type, size or date modified.
