    Did a quick search and I don't think anyone's picked up on this yet?? I happened to stumble over it and was excited to see Alan Masarek expressing excitement for HP's acquisition of Palm.

    The mobile operating system ecosystem

    He's also asking for what we'd like to see in the WebOS release of QO so hit the comments and chime in!

    I never was that much a fan of DataViz; they seemed to follow the blundering MS Office path. No easy organization of files, just one big huge list. Hopefully QO will be a refreshing combination of clean interface and powerful features.

    Personally, I always liked Wordsmith as a mobile wordprocessor, that sync'd with desktop and had a Word Plug-in. It was the only reason I kept Word on my computer after OOO came out.

    I have used QO on Palm OS and it worked great. I don't do a lot of document editing on my phone but do need it occasionally. I look forward to QO on my Pre.

    According to this site:

    QuickOffice Now Officially Coming to webOS

    Excerpt (emphasis mine):

    "In the wireless world, there are a variety of operating systems for developers, such as Quickoffice, to pursue. The list includes Android, Bada, BlackBerry, iOS, MeeGo, Symbian, and also, webOS. The last, webOS, is being more closely watched than ever, especially since HP bought Palm, which originally developed the elegant platform.

    Jon Rubenstein, formerly CEO of Palm, now at HP, sought to heighten the buzz during a speech at Fortune’s Brainstorm conference. Jon mentioned that the next iteration of the operating system, webOS 2.0, would be available later this year. This is exciting news and sparked increased attention in the blogosphere, as webOS is a technically sophisticated platform and this update will certainly inject new life into existing webOS devices, let alone the exciting new products HP is rumored to have planned.

    At Quickoffice, we’re extremely excited to see this development and the increased focus webOS is deservedly obtaining. We’ve already seen increased competition driving innovation in the market, with Android’s Froyo, BlackBerry OS 6, iOS and now the potential of webOS 2.0. We’ve always maintained a mission that we’ll provide robust mobile applications for our users, across all the major mobile platforms, and this scope includes webOS. I think users, and the industry in general, watching webOS will be pleasantly surprised if they continue to watch Quickoffice and our continued leadership in the mobile space. With the increased focus on smartphones, tablets and MIDs, mobile professionals need solutions that help them remain productive when away from the office and it’s our aim to ensure that‘s possible, whatever device they have."

    If an employee forgets his Pre2 in a Biergarten, Palm won't bother with raiding and suing Gizmodo but promptly release the PrPrPr&#$275$;$dator$ $Drones$.

    Question is, will it include document editting. If not, this is meh... The version floating around in the 2.0 SDK does not and for whatever the reason was DataViz couldn't (or wouldn't) include it, I don't believe QO is going to be able to do it either. At least not by the end of this year.

    I have a feeling Palm scrapped the Dataviz Docs View that was included as viewing docs only and replaced it with a similar viewing only Quick Office version. Then a paid full editing version will most likely be in the App Catalog upon 2.0 release is my guess..
