QuickOffice Premier 4.5 is essential in turning your S60 device into a multimedia computer

When you buy a Nseries or one of the various other supported Nokia devices found around the world then you will find that the QuickOffice software is preinstalled as the Office document. However, after you launch it and try to create a document you will find that these devices come with the viewing only capability. (The Eseries devices do come with editing capabilities because they are designed for the mobile worker who is more apt to create documents.) This may be fine for the majority of the people, but if you own a device with the viewer capability or with no Office compatible software and you need to create documents, then I recommend you check out the ultimate in S60 mobile Office viewing, creation, and editing. QuickOffice Premier for S60 is now at version 4.5 and includes seamless email integration with Mail for Exchange 2.0, sharper fonts, live voice notes in PowerPoint, and much more. While there may be other S60 Office software, QuickOffice Premier is the only one with PowerPoint editing functionality.
