Wordprocessing on a mobile phone?
June 27, 2010 6:12am CST
Is there a good mobile phone that is good for wordprocessing ? I also need to be able to transfer the text back onto my laptop or via the internet. Normally, I would just use a laptop or PC, but even a netbook is too muc to carry around these days as I move around and travel a lot, I just prefer to use a phone when I can do some typing while on a train or in the coffee shop without having to lugg a netbook around or find a table space for it. Does anyone have any good ideas?

Right now I'm using a Nokia E72 and it comes with Quick Office and a memory card. I often use this when I'm travelling as I want to jot down things. I usually save my documents in the memory card. If I want to transfer the file in my laptop, I just connect my phone to it via USB and navigate to its memory card and copy my files. Its memory is like an external hard disk. I don't need to synchronize it. If I updated the file in my laptop and I want the copy in my phone to be updated, I just copy it back and overwrite the old file. I've tried this with MS Word. I haven't tried it yet with Excel but I think it will be the same. My phone is quite new so I haven't really explored if there are other ways of synchronizing or transferring files to a laptop. I'm much comfortable with how I do currently. You may want to check it out at Nokia's website. Prior to this, I was using a Palm TX but I retired it a long time ago. :)
