QuickOffice announces Premier 6.0 with 2007 support and more

QuickOffice is the software you will find on most S60 devices today in the Standard form that lets you view documents that are sent to you via email. You can upgrade to the Premier version and enable the ability to create new documents right on your device. I currently have QuickOffice 5.0 on my E71, but just read over on All About Symbian that QuickOffice Premier 6.0 is now available for S60 devices for US$39.

Congrats on the new site Matt! I read many reviews on the E71, but it was your comments on daily usage over time that really compelled me to buy one!

Anyway, according to AllAboutSymbian.com:

Upgrading from previous versions has to be done using the over-the-air Quickmanager system at present and the pricing is:

* Upgrade for 4.5 customers:  $15
* Upgrade for 5.0 customers:  $10

I’m guessing us E71 owners only have to pay $10? Not bad!

Good find Brad. I was going to ask the QuickOffice folks about upgrade costs and for $10 it seems like a great deal. I’ll be upgrading the version on my E71 soon.

Matt, were you able to do this? I just tried and found that my E71 has version 4.1 of QuckOffice, so the upgrade for me is $35 (only a $5 savings from retail).
