Office Moves Browser-wards — More Details

Continuing with my Office Moves Browser-wards post, more details have started emerging.

Sci-Tech Today reports that “the apps will be made available at the end of next year, when the new Office 14 is released. A technology preview is being planned for the end of this year.”

The National Business Review has many screenshots including one that shows the PowerPoint version of the web incarnation — their report adds: “Pushing the boundaries still further, Microsoft says Office 14 Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote files will also be able to be viewed, and edited, on a smart phone’s web browser — and again, you won’t necessarily have to own a Windows Mobile handset.”

vnunet adds that ” “Customers tell us they want to be able to share information and collaborate with others seamlessly across the PC, phones and the web,” said Takeshi Numoto, general manager for the Office client. Speaking at the company’s Professional Developers Conference (PDC) in Los Angeles, Numoto demonstrated how the web applications allow two people to open and edit the same document stored in Office Live Workspace, with any changes synchronised between the two copies almost instantly.”
