image_73We’ve known since pretty much the start of this year that DataViz was going to release a version of its RoadSync Exchange client for Android. We were even there when the official word was given in Barcelona where we attended the MWC back in February. Now things have come to fruition for DataViz, with both Documents To Go and RoadSync Beta now available. So what does this mean for the average Android consumer?

Android users can now view, edit and create native Microsoft Word and Excel files instantly on their Android mobile device. Files can be transferred in the traditional way via e-mail, but also via Bluetooth, USB and memory cards too. Couple this with RoadSync and we think DataViz are onto a winner. RoadSync uses the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync® protocol to provide secure, wireless and direct push synchronization with Exchange Server 2003 and 2007 and the beta supports push e-mail, attachments and contacts.

If you want to pick up a copy of Documents To Go, you can download it for an introductory price of $19.99 exclusively through the Android market. RoadSync beta is free through the Android market until the May 31. For more information:
