Quickoffice Suite Coming to webOS
After well over a year on the market, WebOS device users still do not have a version of Documents To Go with editing capabilities matching that of a Palm OS handheld from a decade ago. Even after suspending plans for such an app, only a vague message about an eventual version of DTG for WebOS is found on Dataviz's website.
Thankfully, Quickoffice has stepped up and make what is apparently a renewed commitment to WebOS courtesey of a recent post to their corporate blog. While not an outright announcement of a full Quickoffice for WebOS, they hint that users will be "pleasantly surprised if they continue to watch Quickoffice and our continued leadership in the mobile space". The full text of the message from CEO Alan Masarek can be found here.
QuickOffice is certainly no newcomer to the world of Palm, having been a solid competitor to Dataviz's Documents To Go for years until DTG became entrenched within the community due to being part of Palm's pre-loaded ROM bundle starting with the Tungsten C in 2003. The current release of QuickOffice is version 7.6 for Palm OS Garnet but this is incompatible with Motion Apps' Classic Garnet emulator for WebOS.
