Quickoffice® to Bring Mobile Office Productivity to webOS Customers Worldwide

webOS 2.0 Devices Will Come Pre-Loaded With Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite Viewers

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - October 19, 2010) - Quickoffice, Inc., the global leader in mobile office productivity solutions, today announced that Quickoffice software will be embedded on HP webOS smartphones running webOS 2.0, including the new Palm Pre 2 smartphone. The deal will be the first time the new Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite viewers have been bundled directly in webOS mobile devices.

Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite is the only webOS mobile solution to provide comprehensive viewing for Microsoft Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint files along with mobile cloud storage access to a variety of services, including Google® docs, and Dropbox. By combining the rich development tools of webOS with Quickoffice's years of technical experience building robust mobile office applications, Quickoffice was able to deliver an advanced app with a user-friendly interface. Quickoffice enables mobile users to remain productive when away from the office. In the near future, users will be able to purchase an upgrade which will enable robust editing of Office files, including those stored in the cloud, allowing users to make edits, share via email and/or easily save back to their remote repositories.

"Becoming the embedded mobile office application for the webOS platform is another key milestone in our strategy of bringing our award-winning product to every major mobile platform," said Gregg Fiddes, VP Sales and Business Development at Quickoffice. "webOS is extremely powerful, easy to use and provides consumers with an intuitive user experience. It's a perfect fit for our application and we're excited to continue to bring more features and functionality to webOS users."

"Mobile devices are changing how we live and connect, including when, where and how people work," said Joe Hayashi, vice president of Platform and Tools, Palm Global Business Unit, HP. "We're thrilled to be working with Quickoffice to provide webOS users the productivity tools they need."

Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite viewers will also be provided to existing webOS devices as part of HP's 'over-the-air' (OTA) webOS 2.0 updates.
