6. Exchange Data with Computers > Read PC and Mac Documents

Read PC and Mac Documents

Sure, the screen’s small and you might have to scroll and squint a bit, but if you’ve got to read documents while you’re on the go, something’s better than nothing!

Working with office documents while on the run might seem tedious at first. Most mobile phones have keypads that don’t exactly lend themselves well to text input, but I’ve often found myself wanting to read them, especially when I receive attachments via email. With the help of some affordable software, you can view, and in some cases even edit, documents that start out life on a PC or Mac.

I have been using Quickword Viewer ($14.95 from http://www.quickoffice.com/) to view documents while they are sitting in the Inbox on my Nokia 6600, waiting to end up on my computer when I get back home or into the office. Quickword also can read Palm DOC eBooks. Quickword is fast, and can run at full screen to show the most that any document viewer really can show on a Series 60 device. Quickpoint Viewer ($14.95) is also available, and will let you view PowerPoint documents on your phone.
