    Google Docs goes mobile.

    View both documents and spreadsheets. Editing in Google future plans.

    "It’s a minimalist reformatting of the “Google Office suite" for cellphone display. What you will see is a search box as well as recent documents – word processing, spreadsheets, or presentations – below it. You can also navigate through your different folders in this stripped-down version of Docs (which might make a decent Google gadget, too).

    What you specifically can’t do at this point is view every file type. Opening a text document results in the page being displayed normally. Try to open a spreadsheet, and you are offered to view it as HTML or download it as XLS (Excel)." - Via blogoscoped.com

    Re: Google Docs goes mobile.

    Do the documents you want to view have to be stored on Google's server somewhere? That would be what would stop me from using it, as my company treats every document as if it were Top Secret, Eyes Only, or "I'm going to let you see this, but then I have to kill you".

    As with personal email stored on Google's servers. I would avoid storing corporate docs on with this service as one would also avoid using or forwarding corporate email to a gmail account. Useful for personal docs similar to email services.

    Hope this helps

    Interesting, But I can do the same thing with the gmail app. I send myself a document, add a star to it, and i can access it anytime. Am i missing somthing?

    A fool always finds a greater fool to admire him. Fools admire, but men of sense approve.
