Oops! Microsoft Expired Your Office Mobile 2010 Beta

Posted by Ed Hansberry in "Windows Phone Software" @ 06:00 AM

http://blogs.technet.com/office2010...-april-5th.aspx

If you were beta testing the new Office Mobile 2010 suite of productivity apps on your Windows Mobile 6.5 device, you may have noticed it isn't working anymore. This is because it expired on April 5. While this info was given in the details when you signed up for the beta, Microsoft didn't do their usual announcements reminding beta testers of the pending expiration date.

"The Beta expired on April 5, 2010. We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused. While the expiration date was mentioned in the product terms of use, we realize that you may have questions and we decided to answer them in today’s blog post."

The blog has the steps you can take to get a working copy of the previous version of Office Mobile on your device, though it might cost you some cash if your device didn't ship with Office. It does make me wonder how many people were actually testing it. The only place I heard about this issue was after MS posted their mea culpa, which was two days after the apps died. Were you testing it and if so, did you notice it quit working?

Office Mobile For Windows Phone 7 Series

"We actually haven't seen any official shots of the Office apps for Windows Phone 7 Series, but now that Microsoft's emulator has been hacked and unlocked, we've got a glimpse of what creating a Word doc in OneNote looks like -- and while there's a high probability that this a super-early version of the app, it's still revealing in how drastically minimal it is."

There's a couple of video run throughs as well, mostly showing off what's available in the emulator, but with sneak peeks at the Office apps as well. Don't expect to do anything more than basic editing (at least, not yet), but you know - at least they're there.

Office Mobile 7 (2010)/WM 7 on Microsoft.com

"In what appears as another nod towards confirming how Windows Mobile 7 will look like when it is released next year, Microsoft has posted the Office Mobile 7 UI concept that we reported on a few weeks back on their main Office website as a screen shot of Office Mobile 2010. The image can be found on this page, although we are unsure how much longer it will be up. Huge tip of the hat to Stephen Chapman who originally reported this on his site, MSFTKitchen.com. This is yet another confirmation that this will indeed be the layout of Windows Mobile 7 when it is released. Only time will tell as we get closer to the scheduled release."

I wondered when we'd see an Office Mobile 7 story surface. I sure wish this was coming out sooner. But you know, if Office Mobile is created robustly, Microsoft could have a productive, professional hit on their hands. With the Sharepoint Workspace, users can feel like they truly have their office with them. I was messing around with the new Office 2010 beta on my desktop and for the most part - I like it. I hope Office Mobile seamlessly blends in well. What do you all think? What does Windows Mobile 7 absolutely have to have to be successful?

"If you want to edit Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files on your Windows Mobile device, there is no substitute for SoftMaker Office. Only SoftMaker Office preserves all the formatting and content of your Microsoft Office files. Good news! SoftMaker Office has just become more affordable. From now until November 11, 2009, each of its applications is available for only US$ | € 9.99, and the full suite comes at a low US$ | € 24.95."

If you're looking for a powerful suite of software to work on Microsoft Office documents, it doesn't get much better than SoftMaker's Office suite. Normally quite expensive, the suite is available for $24.95 USD, or $9.99 for each separate app, until November 11th.
