The Windows Phone 7.5 Review, A Month-Long Experience

Document Management In Mobile Office

Windows Phone 7.5: Office

Unlike other mobile operating systems, WP7 comes ready with document editing capabilities. Mobile Office organizes all of your Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and SharePoint Workspace documents into tiles based on color. SkyDrive and Office 365 get all of that data onto the cloud, enabling online access without worrying about synchronization.

Overall, Word does a great job of preserving the original formatting of .doc and .docx documents.

Excel doesn't maintain formatting as well as Word. Although the layout of individual spreadsheets is generally preserved, charts may or may not look the same as they do on a PC with Office 2010. The two charts in the screen shot above should both be 2D contour charts; however, they appear as bar charts in Mobile Excel.

    To my knowledge there is not Skype yet on WP7, also a major point missed is the intergrated messaging system allowing you to switch seamlessy between SMS, Facebook chat and MSN. But otherwise nice review learnt a few things myself about Bing search!

    I've got a WP7 phone. The only thing I want to see added now is VPN access. This is the one thing Apple & Android have over WP7

    Never had a BSOD. The only issue I get(which is rare). Is that if I unlock the phone at the exact same time I get a Txt the screen can't be used. I have to lock and then unlock it to get it back
