Quickoffice Premier 5.0
Productivity suite for smartphones
- Can read a variety of formats
- Preload version on recent Nokia phones can only read documents
For anyone who wants to revise documents, spreadsheets or presentations on the go, without needing to carry a laptop, Quickoffice Premier 5.0 could be just the ticket, while anyone frustrated with the (very!) basic Nokia S60 diary should take a look at the same publisher's Quickcalendar.
Price$ 70.00 (AUD)
Quickoffice Premier 5.0 is an MS Office compatible productivity suite for smartphones.
If you need to revise documents, spreadsheets or presentations on the go, but don't want to carry a laptop, Quickoffice Premier 5.0 could be just what you're looking for.
As the name might suggest, Quickoffice Premier 5.0 is an office suite for handheld devices, in particular mobile phones and especially Symbian, although there's also versions for PalmOS and BlackBerry. On Symbian, there are versions for Nokia Series 60 and the UIQ3 interface favoured by Sony-Ericsson and Motorola.
Quickoffice Premier 5.0 is compatible with Microsoft-format documents, spreadsheets and presentations, which means it's also compatible with other software that can generate those.
We used Quickoffice Premier 5.0 quite happily with files from OpenOffice for instance. MS-Office 97 to 2003 files are supported across the range, but only the latest S60 v3 release supports Office 2007 files.
That's because new versions of Quickoffice usually appear first on S60. Indeed, if you have a reasonably recent Nokia phone, there's a fair chance it comes with Quickoffice pre-loaded. Be warned though that the preload version will be read-only, and cannot edit files.
Even in view mode, one of the best things about Quickoffice Premier 5.0 is you can zoom in and out, and shrink the font down to see a decent amount of a document — as long as your eyesight is up to it, of course. On a phone where the default text viewer can barely fit 30 words to a screen, it's a huge step forward.
It lets you create files as well as edit them, and it supports T9 predictive text on a normal phone keypad. Anyone typing more than a few words is likely to want a qwerty keyboard though — if your device doesn't have one of these built in, you can use an external keyboard. Quickoffice Premier 5.0 was quite happy with our iGo Bluetooth folding keyboard, for example.

The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
