    Well, time to eat crow (without salt no less) :o

    The latest demo on Apple's website shows the iPhone can VIEW .doc, .xls, and .pdf files attached to emails. It also point out that it has threaded SMS...:bow:

    Almost as if they sat back and waited for complainers (like me) and then released info on all the goodies Jobs skipped in the big premier. I always enjoy looing dumb, but of course it comes easily to me...

    Wha a difference 24 hours makes...can't wait to see what else trickles out over the next week...
    You should only eat half a crow because you still can't edit them. Or can you? Hmm...

    No, I think I owe them the whole bird, because all I asked is that they at least let us view so we can comment on attachments (#48). Anything else you guys would like me to ask for before launch...

    Do you need some salt? Hot sauce perhaps?

    Now the real questions - which version of Word are supported in the viewer...

    I did not see the .xls viewer being shown...

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was some server-side app that turns your attachment into a PDF to be viewed on the phone.

    With a 10Mb limit perhaps??

    Yikes! Using Edge? That would be painful.

    All these demos have been so cool ON WIFI CONNECTIONS. I can't wait for the return lines to start up with all those folks who have choked for a week on EDGE. I can see it now..."this $%#@ thing takes 20 seconds just to LOAD the first page of the Times...you ought to see how long it takes to switch pages..."

    No, actually it would be quite convenient, revolutionary in fact. When on the run, if you get an email with an attachment you simply must read, just go to your local Starbucks (in SF never more than 100 feet away), pay the fee and look at the attachment! How convenient!

    Or a good reason to purchase the T-Mobile Total Internet package as a way to make the iPhone a better value. iPhone: The first multi-carrier (required) phone!! :shake:

    My point is the Apple should have at least included a viewer so you you could read and comment on attachments. That would probably take care of 80%+ of the user universe.
    Well, we can mark that one as done.

    So GoDocs will be another iPhone/iPad portal to Google Docs? (That's all I could interpret from the video.)

    It will be much more than simple google docs viewer

    It would be nice if the video showed that, rather than just showing Google Docs.
