Application DataViz's Documents To Go for Sony Ericsson Px00

DataViz has announced the availability of their Documents To Go suite for the Sony Ericsson P800, P900 and P910i. The suite allows you to view, edit and create Microsoft Word and Excel files and view Powerpoint files on the phone. Highlights include support for embedded images and tables in word, InTact technology (aimed at preserving document integrity in phone <-> PC transfers, and TrueType font support. Documents To Go faces stiff competition from the incumbent office suite software package Quickoffice (which is included on most P910i's out of the box). You can buy and download a trial of Documents to Go in our software store (affiliate link).

DataViz are offering an upgrade price for Quickoffice users so they clearly see the competition. However competition is clearly good for the end user. The proof of the matter will be in how good the software is and we hope to have a review of Documents to Go (and an update to our Quickoffice reviews) shortly.

As another well known and high profile developer ports their product over it is clear that the Symbian platform is gaining increasing attention.



Press Release:

DataViz's Award-Winning Documents To Go Now Available for Sony Ericsson P800, P900 and P910 Smartphones

Finally, Seamless Desktop-Quality Editing Delivered with Unique "InTact Technology"


5/09/05 -- Milford, CONN. -- DataViz, Inc., a leading provider of Office compatibility solutions for over 21 years, announced today that its award-winning mobile Office suite, Documents To Go, is now available for Sony Ericsson P800/P900/P910 smartphones. Building on the market success of the number one selling Documents To Go for Palm OS, DataViz has extended the product line to now offer owners of these Sony Ericsson series of smartphones the ability to use, edit and create actual Microsoft Word and Excel files as well as view PowerPoint files. Developed for the Symbian UIQ platform and specifically for Sony Ericsson P800/P900/P910 smartphones, this new edition is also the first to incorporate DataViz's unique InTact Technology. This groundbreaking technology ensures complete document integrity when Microsoft Office files are opened and edited by users on mobile platforms, eliminating the need for conversion or desktop computer synchronization. Any edits will be intelligently merged with a file's existing formatting to create an updated document that can be e-mailed or exchanged with others directly from the smartphone.

"With critical documents being shared across a variety of platforms, the importance of document integrity is becoming all the more evident," said Danny Tu, DataViz, Inc. "By equipping the popular Sony Ericsson P800, P900 and P910 smartphones with Documents To Go, business professionals and road warriors alike can exchange proposals, sales reports and other important files with colleagues while in the field, and do so confidently knowing all formatting and file attributes will remain."

Mobile Office solutions currently available on the market either offer a view-only solution for Office files or are unable to maintain all file formatting when edits are made to those files in a mobile environment, compromising their usefulness. Documents To Go, with the employment of InTact Technology, bridges this gap by providing a desktop-quality editing experience that ensures complete document integrity. From files that contain common formatting attributes such as embedded graphics to those with advanced features such as footnotes, endnotes and comments, all formatting unique to each document will be maintained regardless of changes made to the file on these Sony Ericsson series of smartphones.

"As a leading supplier of software and hardware related to smartphones and PDA's, we recognize the increasing need for enterprise-quality business solutions that enhance end-user productivity and provide access to critical data and files," said Claes Bäck, CEO, of Datanät in Sweden. "We are pleased to see DataViz bring their industry leading mobile Office suite, Documents To Go, to the Symbian platform."

In addition to InTact Technology for Word and Excel files, Documents To Go boasts a number of key features designed to help users quickly locate information and effortlessly make edits and create new documents. These include:

· Support for embedded images and tables in Word files.

· Ability to view and edit existing comments, footnotes and endnotes in Word files.

· Support for 111 of the most commonly-used Excel functions - the most of any mobile Office solution for these Sony Ericsson series of smartphones.

· Support for the five-way Jog Dial, tap scrolling, and full-screen views.

· TrueType font support** providing clear and crisp text rendering.

Having just been trying this, I can vouch for the fact that it's pretty fabulous and blows Quickoffice away in terms of functionality while leaving the original document structure and formatting intact.

Way to go, DataViz!
