Mobile World Congress: Android Gets Its Own Office

Android, the Google-powered OS, now has Microsoft Office compatibility.

That’s thanks to Dallas-based software developer Quickoffice.

“With the Android platform quickly gaining popularity, it’s important that critical functionality for mobile users, such as document viewing, is developed,” said Gregg Fiddes, vice president of sales and strategic partnerships at Quickoffice. “We are excited to make this feature available to T-Mobile G1 users with the launch of our award-winning software.”

For a $7.99 download fee, Quickoffice lets users access and view .doc and .xls files sent through a Gmail attachment or stored on a memory card. The viewing features include zoom and scrolling and retain original document formatting. Word and Excel documents can be saved to the mobile device from Gmail for later viewing.

There’s also a file manager for navigating and managing folder.
