    Did this today at the studio (fitness joint), only had a few minutes and created an excel sheet to track some numbers for a group class. The reason this is a win is because it was convenient as ****, went right to skydrive and saved me about 30 mins.

    Seriously LOVE this OS!

    PS:
    FOR THE LOVE OF (insert personal lord and savior here), DO NOT TURN THIS INTO DUAL VS SINGLE CORE!

    And yes D5, I just had a sTiFf CuP oF cOfFeE!!

    I have all my pictures uploaded to SkyDrive automatically when I first got my Arrive way back when I started with windows phone. I dropped the phone broke the **** out of it wouldn't work. Earlier that day I had taken a picture of some wiring on a machine I was working on just before I disconnected it. A couple of weeks go by I have a new Arrive and I'm putting the machine back together but O_o crap I don't have the picture any more i took it with the phone that broke. Then it hit me Skydrive.... Saved my *** that day for sure. Windows Phone rocks!

    I reviewed my powerpoint for my presentation on my way to class today.... noticed that I had a typo and fixed it on my phone! Granted, it wasn't through skydrive, (I had to email it to myself because skydrive syncing isn't working, about to make a thread on it) but having Office on my phone is FANTASTIC.

    Only thing that sucks though is that equations do not show up on word documents. I'm a Mechanical Engineering major. That's kind of important to me.

    I know what you mean, it's funny how you know the features are there but until you actually use them and they save you time and effort you don't realise how good they are. I had the same thing with a powerpoint presentation the other day.

    If your phone was dual core it wouldn't have broken.....

    I think you need dual core that. CAD stands for "Could Accommodate Dual"

    I'm sorry. I had to. :P

    I say dual core devices don't bounce a 30 foot drop would kill any device. Dual core doesn't augment reality just like wanting the back cover on the AT&T Titan to be made of plastic doesn't make it happen. ITS ALUMINUM PEOPLE! I seriously have no issue with my off topic rant because I'm really not sure what the topic of this thread is.

    I use SkyDrive as well for syncing pics and docs. But I am disappointed that I can't sync a OneNote notebook from OneNote 2007 and use it on my phone.

    Almost all of my OneNote files are from my laptop, (synced into SkyDrive where I can read them - abheit with much less formatting - on my Focus S).

    I do like that WP Office files sync with Skydrive but excel spreadsheets on the fly aren't really unique to WP. BlackBerrys have a DocstoGo app that create spreadsheets, documents, and presentations on the fly in docx, xlsx, and pptx formats. But I do agree, the Skydrive syncing is great.

    There was an article here and on other wites that the changes which were trotted out within the last couple of days to Skydrive were causing sync issues with office. You might want to read the article there is workaround.

    Enabling the auto upload of SkyDrive and creating a live account for my WP users is now standard practice. They may not even realise that I am doing them an enormous favour but one day... one day they will.

    I view powerpoints and spreadsheets on my phone all the time! Do you guys really edit excel spreadsheets though. I found editing spreadsheets on the phone screws up the formulas. But it's a major plus to be able to view them on the go.

    Yes. OneNote 2010.

    2003 and 2007 versions don't work too well or at all with SkyDrive.

    My other Phone came with ThinkFree full version bit I bought QuickOffice Pro to use with my 50gb Box account so I never really seen that as a win.

    I do like the built in Office365 and more importantly SharePoint support.

    Don't tend to use OneNote much since a smartphone is too limited irt input for serious notetaking. Use it on my desktop, though. :-)

    Documents to go is preloaded on blackberries. RIM bought DataVis a couple or few years ago. Lol.

    And I don't auto upload my pictures to SkyDrive. It's a waste of bandwidth and battery. It resizes your pictures too aggressively for my liking. It can completely make details then we're visible in the original shot invisible in the SkyDrive version.
