BB10: Microsoft Office Documents

Hello,

 

Currently i use an iphone for work and the reason i switched 3 years ago was that i was unable to view excel, work, powerpoint documents very well on the BB. when i use an iphone to view these documents, it show it as a PDF type format and is shows the whole doucment. Even in excel it will alow me to have access to the other tabs. This made life a lot easier beucase i work  for an automotive plant, that runs 24 hrs 6 days a week,

 

Please let me know if the BB10 will allow me to view documents the same way as the iphone or better. thanks

 

regards

 

Jason

Re: BB10: Microsoft Office Documents

I don't hav an iPhone so I cannot compare.
I have just sent to myself this excel file by email:
http://www.arirang.co.kr/TV2/Download_LTS.asp?FN=20130128-20130203.xls&Cate=TV

and from the mail, I can open the attachment. I get to a screen, the tabs are at the top (not at the bottom like in Excel for Windows), and I can pinch to zoom in/out. I can swipe in all directions, and edit the spredsheet too (I did not do intensive testing, sorry).

Remember that when you switched from BlackBerry, you had the BlackBerry experience from 3 years ago :smileywink:
BlackBerry 10 is different.

I have a playbook and it comes with Documents To Go.  I believe the BB10 will also have it so you should be able to edit Word, excel, and powerpoint files on the phone.
