    Sounds amazing!
    ...but at $70? That'll put a hole in my [already empty] pocketbook.

    For everyone that has been waiting (like 4EVER)
    DataViz has announced the release of Docs2Go for Blackberry

    It is $69.99 and has a 30 day free trial.

    Unlike the version that comes with OS 4.5 this
    is a full version that supports viewing and editing
    of Word, Excel an Powerpoint files.

    When you are in Docs To Go that came with 4.5 be sure to check for update using the menu button. There is one available!

    Two questions:

    1) Why pay for the upgrade? (I know read the comparison page). But is it worth it?
    2) How does the Premium version compare with the likes of eOffice or QuickOffice?

    The email they sent me states your device MUST HAVE ver 4.5 or better in order for this program to operate. Anyone know if there is a 4.5 ver for a Verizon 8830 on the horizon?
    Thanks

    I just got the email, and i'm pretty disappointed. You have to upgrade to Premium according to the email if you want to create documents. EAFD DataViz, on my Treo I can create all day long with the free version that came with the OS. And Premium is only $50 for Palm OS. Very, very lame

    They must be crazy. I wouldn't pay more than $50 for it.

    AT&T has the Curve (8300) paralyzed without OS 4.5!

    I would like to use this, but by nice new Sprint Curve 8330 doesn't have OS 4.5.

    Don't take my word for it, but I'm pretty sure that OS 4.3, which is what the Curve has, is the same thing as OS 4.5. The upgrade version for older phones that is being called 4.5 was originally called 4.3. We're all using 4.2, so that at least makes some sense...

    Yeah, $70 is an utter joke, when the only 'feature' is being able to create your own documents. ****, they don't even have the 2007-format stuff finished yet. Lame.

    (And no, you will have to be running OS 4.5 or 4.6 to upgrade, because you need the base version included with the OS. 4.5 will be out for the Curve "soon".)

    You should already be able top open those with the native, built-in viewer.
    DOC and XLS too.
    I imagine DTG makes them all look much prettier though.

    I won't comment on the price because everyone is entitled to their own opinion on what an application like this is 'worth', however the list of premium features is available at the link below and I think you'll find there's more than 1 thing there:

    ttp://www.dataviz.com/products/documentstogo/blackberry/feature_matrix.html

    Also keep in mind that similar apps for BlackBerry smartphones have been selling in the $100 range or have a yearly renewal fee tied to them.

    As far as features that aren't 'finished' yet: if you buy now, you're going to get everything on that list. If it's not ready when you purchase, you'll get it in a free update when it's ready (and besides, if you're with a US carrier your device probably doesn't meet the system requirements yet anyway so that 'issue' could disappear pretty quickly).
