Documents To Go Premium coming to N900 after 1.2 update

I previously wrote about how you can use Google Docs on the N900, but it is a bit painful to navigate around and use it extensively. We have had a Documents To Go viewer on the N900 since launch last November, but have not seen any kind of full Office upgrade to this application like we see on other platforms like Android and the iPhone. I just saw a post appear on the DataViz blog that states Documents To Go Premium for the N900 will be available shortly after the 1.2 update. This should be the full monty and give us Office document editing and creation ability on the N900.

Documents To Go Premium coming to N900 after 1.2 update

I searched around the Maemo.org site and see that a RC version of PR1.2 is floating around so our N900 devices should be updated soon. I am not going to upgrade until an official release is available, but look forward to getting Office capability on such a large device as the N900.

N900 com PR 1.2, yay!

Já nós ficamos com: Qt 4.6.2, suporte a videochamadas via Skype/Google Talk/SIP, navegação em modo retrato, suporte a IM Facebook, melhorias no suporte a Exchange, correções diversas na UI e um update na Ovi Store com novos jogos – além do fato de que logo os donos de N900 terão uma suite office full, com o Documents to Go Premium.

Erm…

Right now, we have both Abiword (WYSIWYG word processing) and GNUmeric (Spreadsheet) running natively on the N900, i.e. both are tweaked for the Maemo touchscreen UI:

Not (yet) for the unwary, but I can assure you that both work fairly well and trying them out didn’t break anything.
