Microsoft Introduces Office Mobile 2010

Microsoft has on occasion been accused of letting its mobile efforts lag, but it's not letting any grass grow under its feet this time. In conjunction with the release of Office 2010 for PC users, Microsoft is making the mobile version of Office 2010 available for smartphones running Windows Mobile 6.5. Enterprise Mobile Today has all the details.

After a public beta release late last year, Office Mobile 2010 officially debuts today, along with the release of the full desktop version of Microsoft Office 2010, bringing updated versions of core Microsoft productivity tools such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint to the mobile computing workforce.

The one caveat to Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT) Office Mobile 2010, however, is that it is available at the Windows Phone Marketplace as a free upgrade for Windows Mobile 6.5 users. This means it's news for the vast legacy base of Windows Mobile clients but may not be so noteworthy for those holding out for Microsoft's new mobile platform, Windows Phone 7, which is widely expected to boast a slick Office Hub interface that includes document management and SharePoint features.
