In my years of experience, QuickOffice has been the best documents editing suite available on mobile. It has also been the default built-in suite on Nokia’s Symbian/Belle smartphones till date. Of course, with the advent of iOS and Android, versions for those two platforms have been released too.
As such, Google’s recent acquisition of QuickOffice must have come as a shock to Nokia. A key app in their arsenal now belongs to the competition. I doubt though that this acquisition will give Nokia’s CEO any sleepless night, given his constant sidelining of Belle in the company’s new campaign.
QuickOffice is good and versatile, and Google must have seen the value in owning both the product and the team behind it. Which leads me to asking: Why did Nokia not buy QuickOffice all these years?
One thing is sure: now that QuickOffice belongs to Google, expect some better integration with Google’s services. Sounds like a winner in my books.
