DataViz Releases Office Editing Suite for Maemo 5

The mini smartphone tablet Nokia N900 gets its own Microsoft Office editing suite today thanks to DataViz. The company has recently released its Documents To Go Premium Edition, which allows users to open, view, and edit Microsoft Office documents, spreadsheets, and presentation files. Promised to be compatible with Office 2010 and Office 2007, the Premium Edition will sell for $29.99 from the N900′s on-device Ovi Store. DataViz also has a Documents To Go Viewer Edition for $9.99, which foregoes the editing capabilities of its higher priced brother.

Sadly, though Documents To Go Premium Edition for Maemo 5, with the editing function, would be priced higher for Maemo 5 than for competing mobile operating systems, such as for Android (currently at $14.99 promotion) and iOS ($9.99 or $14.99 depending on Exchange support feature). Users who have purchased the Viewer Edition can upgrade to the Premium Edition via the DataViz website.

The Nokia N900 is a capable smartphone that packs the power of Nokia’s previous Internet Tablet series into a smaller form factor with a sliding keyboard, support for T-Mobile’s AWS 3G network, and voice call support. It will be the last smartphone/tablet based on the Maemo 5 operating system as Nokia and Intel have announced that they will move towards the Linux-based MeeGo OS for future devices.
