Still wondering about the Bold and Word 2007?

One of the notes at the bottom of the features page of the official Bold website reference Blackberry's Word To Go not supporting Word 2007.  Does anyone know if this is old, and will be corrected on the Bold due for imminent release here in the U.S., or if it is something that is likely to be corrected with a downloadable software update in the not too distant future?


I hope that the 2007 version of Outlook (incld business contacts), and the other Office software referenced as useable on the Bold all work with the upcoming Bold.  Maybe Word 2007 is the exception, and is only temporary?


Anyone have specific knowledge and or experience with this? 




P.S.  The more testimonials I read about this Bold phone found thru Internet searches, the exceptional this phone seems.  I just hope they have been able to use the many months it has been on the market outside the U.S. to fix all the glitches everyone seems to be referencing here.

Hi and welcome to the forums!

I can assure you that many users here sync very successfully with Outlook 2007.

As far as Word 2007 here is the OS 4.5 FAQ from dataviz.
