Today not only marks the availability of Office 2010 for organizations, but also the immediate availability of Office Mobile 2010 for all Windows Mobile 6.5 based phones with an earlier version of Office Mobile FOR FREE! via Windows Phone Marketplace. Office Mobile 2010 for Windows Mobile 6.5 includes new mobile versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and SharePoint Workspace. These new mobile versions offer a more touch-friendly layout and greater ability to work with documents on the phone – like editing PowerPoint presentations.
Personally my favorite new feature is the SharePoint and Windows Phone integration. With SharePoint Workspace Mobile 2010 and PowerPoint Mobile 2010 I can access, edit and save changes to a presentation, all while offline, and know the changes will update back to the server. For example, I have access to links and documents from my SharePoint sites and I can select a PowerPoint presentation to view offline on my phone. I can then make quick text edits and be ready to present no matter where I am. Finally, thanks to SharePoint Workspace Mobile when I save the changes these get updated back into the SharePoint server so everybody has access to the latest version of the document.
In addition making Office Mobile 2010 available for download today, we’re also demonstrating some of the next generation capabilities of Office Mobile for Windows Phone 7. Check out this demo of PowerPoint Streaming for Windows Phone 7 that was shown today in New York at the Office 2010 Launch: www.the2010event.com.
