Limitations of Mobile Office

If you own the Xperia X1, chances are, you probably love the fact that you have Microsoft Mobile Office on your mobile phone. You can edit and make Word and Excel Documents on the go. However, since the Xperia X1 is not a PC, there are limitations to what MS Mobile Office can do. For one, Mobile Excel cannot save excel files with file extension csv. Unlike the desktop version of Excel wherein you can save as file types to different version of excel and even csv files, Mobile Excel cannot.

If you want to create database files, you need third party applications which you can install on your Xperia. Pockert Database Viewer is one such application which can view and edit CSV files. As for Pocket Word, opening VERY large doc files will take a LONG time. Also, when you transfer the documents you made on your Pocket Word to your PC, you’ll notice that these documents will have the file extension docx. Now if you have Microsoft Office lower than the 2007 version, you need to install some sort of extended application for your MS Word to view these type of files. Don’t worry, it’s free but the application will take up a lot of space from your hard disk drive.

So even though Xperia X1 is cool to carry around on a business trip, I wouldn’t really leave my laptop if I were you.
