Office 2007 file format support for Windows Mobile Office 2007

Tags: Microsoft Office, Windows Vista, Windows Mobile

I previously blogged about the lack of Office 2007 file format support in Windows Mobile 6. Today Jason Langridge revealed that you will not longer need any third party application for this - but instead Microsoft will provide an update to Microsoft Office Mobile 2007 with support for the new Office 2007 file formats (.docx, .xlsx, .pptx).

A free update will be available for Windows Mobile 6 and 5 devices and all new shipped devices will have it in the ROM, all starting in Q3 of 2007.

This is really good news for all us Windows Mobile and Office 2007 users and I think it's great that the update is supported on Windows Mobile 5 also.

I was just going to write that the Windows Vista Mobile Device Center was in need of an upgrade for better synchronization and device identification - then I found that John Kennedy announced the Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 for Windows Vista has been released.
