If there was any doubt that Android could be a serious business platform, ThinkFree, Inc. may have diminished some of that doubt with their announcement today that they are bringing mobile office applications to Android with their office productivity suite. ThinkFree Mobile will include ThinkFree Write for word processing, ThinkFree Calc for spreadsheets and ThinkFree Show for presentations – all of which are compatible with Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. ThinkFree Mobile is also fully compatible with ThinkFree Online, their online service for document syncing and sharing.
Kerry McGuire, Director of Software Alliances at ARM, says: “ThinkFree Mobile for Android is bringing a new level of choice to smartphones by offering a mobile office solution that satisfies the growing demand for mobility and 24/7 access to your documents. ThinkFree has brought an innovative approach to the mobile office suite that enables a consistent office experience across both smartphones and netbooks. We are pleased to have their continued support as part of the ARM community.”
As a bonus, ThinkFree also offers 1GB of free online document storage, promising reliability and security. If you happen to be at the upcoming COMPUTEX trade show in Taipei, Taiwan from June 2 – 6, you can drop in on ThinkFree for a demonstration. It’s exciting to know that your Android-powered phone will be able to do some serious business!
