Please answer the following:
Does the S. Galaxy 10.1 and the SpringBoard allow you to download QuickOffice Pro so you can draft Word docs? I was in a T-mobile store to buy one or the other of the devices yesterday and the saleswoman said there was not way for me to draft documnets on the devices.
Saleswoman: "They are for entertainment only. You can't work from them."
Me; "Really, but they are both Andriod devices, right?"
Salewoman: "Yes, but they do not support word processing. You can view documents but you can't draft them and then email them."
I went to the Barnes and Noble store in the same shopping center and they were more than happy to show me how their Android device did what I needed.
I would like to buy a T-Mobile tablet but am unsure given the sale force and it apparent lack of knowledge products, software, updates, and return policies. I have read that people have had difficulty with all of the above based on depenadance of asking the sales person and then given incorrect information. Please provide an answer to the needs and necessity of needing the use Office products on a T-Mobile tablet that has to have 3g or 4g access.
the application information for Quikoffice Pro for $4.99 requires Android 2.0 - 2.3.7...
Quickoffice Pro HD for $14.99
should work. It requires Android 3.0 - 3.2 (Android Honeycomb) that comes preinstalled on both devices.
I hope this answers your concerns, and I am sorry for the confusion.
QuickOffice Pro HD is the program you would have to use since it's written for tablets. If you already have a purchased copy (from Market) you can download and install that. There is a QuickOffice Lite that is on the device (but you couldn't create or edit documents on it. It would link you to the buy the TMobile version for the full program, which I didn't do because I already had the paid version of QuickOffice Pro HD.
Can you do work on it? Sure. But you would probably want to use something like a bluetooth keyboard to do serious typing on it. I can use the touchscreen but I find I like using a physical keyboard on it.
I haven't trying uninstalling the QuickOffice Lite HD from my springboard, but I suspect since it's on the springboard by default that I can't remove it short of rooting the device.
