Microsoft Office arrives on Symbian

Microsoft Office arrives on Symbian
Symbian might be a burning platform, but it’s burning for over a year now and to get itself warm while it transitions to Windows Phone, Nokia announced that it’s adding the full Microsoft Office Mobile app to its latest handsets. 

This includes Word Mobile, PowerPoint Mobile and Excel Mobile, all ready to take the load off of your computer and on your cell phone.

The applications will be available on the following handsets:

  • Nokia 701, 
  • Nokia 700, 
  • Nokia 603, 
  • Nokia E7, 
  • Nokia X7, 
  • Nokia C7, 
  • Nokia Oro, 
  • Nokia C6-01.

Nokia 808 PureView will also get it when it launches, while for the Nokia N8, Nokia E6 and Nokia 500 availability will be announed later.

Word Mobile is fully functional on Symbian devices and promises to render all your tables and other fancy formatting right, and of course it supports document editing. Excel and PowerPoint also bring plenty of features, including formula editing for Excel and presentation editing in PowerPoint.

The apps can be downloaded via the Nokia Software Update tool or through Nokia Suite after you connect the phone to your PC.

The applications join OneNote, Lync 2010, Document Connection and PowerPoint Broadcast, all of which were made available Nokia Symbian devices late last year.
