Office Mobile 6.1 has now been officially released for Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC and Windows Mobile 6 devices.
Per the Microsoft web site:
"To allow Windows Mobile users to work with Office documents created in the Open XML formats, Microsoft has developed an upgrade for Word Mobile, Excel Mobile, and PowerPoint Mobile applications. This upgrade to the Office Mobile applications allows viewing and editing of Word documents and Excel workbooks and viewing of PowerPoint slideshows created by using Microsoft Office 2007
Other improvements include:
- Enhanced viewing experience for charts in Excel Mobile
- Ability to view SmartArt in PowerPoint Mobile
- Ability to view and extract files from compressed (.zip) folders"
This upgrade only works for Windows Mobile powered devices that have an earlier version of Office Mobile. If your Windows Mobile powered device does not have Office Mobile applications, this upgrade will not work for you. You can purchase Windows Mobile full Office Mobile suite from handango.
The .msi install is available free from Microsoft here.
