Symbian Microsoft Office now downloadable
Nokia users with Symbian handsets can today download the Microsoft Office Mobile apps to their handsets. Previously, only Windows Phone users had access, but the range of handsets that can now use the software suite has now been expanded to a further eight phones. Initially, the Nokia 603, 700, 701, C6-01, C7, E7, X7 and Oro have access.
The Microsoft developed apps of Word Mobile, Powerpoint Mobile, and Excel Mobile can be loaded onto the phones through the Nokia Software Update tool on the phone or via the PC based Nokia Suite. They will also be downloadable through the Nokia Store in the next few weeks.
Users of the Nokia N8, Nokia E6, and Nokia 500 will be able to get the apps in the near future. The Nokia 808 PureView will have the apps once it goes on sale.
