Re: iPhone sales are estimated to reach 10 millions soon

Re: Study: > 21% of German PCs run OpenOffice

It's hard to compete with Microsoft directly. I remember when everyone used to use Wordperfect and Lotus 1-2-3.

Imagine this not just on android phones but also tablets, netbooks and even Google TV boxes. OEM's will want to bundle so that they can provide Office support out of the box. For example, Samsung currently bundles ThinkFree office with the Galaxy S.

Re: Support for Google Android mobile device operating system

Yes, I really would like to see Softmaker on Android. Many Android phones, like the Droid/Milestone have physical keyboards so that you can type and navigate while using the full screen. That means people are more likely to use them for a full powered office suite than other phones. (IMHO, while the...
