    `Will u be able to open and edit excel files on the pre?
  2. #2  
    Probably should be able to use the MS office via DocumentsToGo - the same way as on Palm OS.

    DataViz is partnered with Palm so yeah, you should be able to open up word, excel and power point with Docs2go. Great mobile office application.

    Unfortunately, this isn't quite a given yet. While we do know that Dataviz is a launch partner, they haven't officially announced anything. It seems likely that there will be DocsToGo, but we don't really know for sure.

    Let's hope it's DTG & the full version. Don't forget Dataviz has other apps. But I think Palm would be crazy to use anything other than their own PIMs.
    Good Luck

    I hope pdf's are included in that mix like it was with Palm OS.

    Dataviz just recently annouced a deluxe or professional for the blackberry that includes pdf support which if you've own a blackberry you would know how hard it is to see pdf's. We have email ourselfs the pdf as an attachment just to be able to see it.

    At least DV has to write a new version and can't (hopefully) give us an old version from the archives like they did on the Treo 755p. When I got mine it came with v8 I think, but the Centro came with v10 Premium.

    At the very least, we'll probably be able to VIEW this docs (and PDFs)... I hope it'll be a full version of D2G to edit Office Docs (of which I use OFTEN).

    ALTHOUGH, the better PDF document reader is PalmPDF (if only THAT can be developed for WebOS)
    Now it's the WAITING GAME: a GSM Palm Pre
    T680 (COPPER) + Cingular = FUN!!
    My T650 & 6230b and NX70 are retired... =(

    Actually, the best solution would be a Linux based PDF reader like xpdf or evince. PalmPDF was a great solution on the Treo, but there are much better solutions out there for this platform... except who knows if we'll see them because of the whole nonnative-SDK thing.

    lol
    Very good point, I still see my Palm POV from the PALM world not the LINUX world...
    --hopefully this phone garners enough attention that it'll be 'jail-broken' etc to take advantage of the LINUX innards... lol--
    I would take that as a very positive sign... OR that MOJO SDK is substantial enough for REAL programming... (doubtful... at first).

    It's a given. Palm isn't putting out a phone that doesn't stick to their roots.

    Don't forget, Dataviz already has a Linux-based version of DTG (it was on the foleo) so I do expect the Pre to come with DTG.

    Yes they are.

    If for some reason there doesn't end up being a native application for excel, I'm sure google docs will be easy enough to access on the phone.

    This might be a better option anyway, since you would then be able to access your spreadsheets anywhere on any any other internet linked device.

    I'm looking forward to replacing my Centro with the Pre

    And CONSIDERING Dataviz also has a version for Android, I'd think no one would be worried about the Pre...

    In other words, it will have the apps... don't worry.

    But I hope its not going to be from Adobe as it will probably occupy all available memory as boot time, crash and slow down the device.

    It would run in Classic mode no matter what.

    I sure hope that was sarcasm...
    no d-pad, no card slot, no exposed keyboard, no desktop sync...

    I have confidence the program does or will exist. The question is, will it be included with the Pre or will we have to buy it? If we have to buy it, then you can add that to the list above.
    Pixi: Sold. Pre: Passed off to another rep. Touchpad: Just a toy until Cloud syncing arrives, and a better doc editor.

    The bigger problem is no stylus. You really cannot navigate well on a spreadsheet without one. Guess I'll keep a toothpick over my ear like the ranchers out west. And yes, just another reason that desktop synch is mission critical. I go out and get payroll data from clients and then synch so that I can do the work.
