Windows Mobile to handle new Office doc formats next year

Office_logoEarly adopters of Microsoft Office 2007 can be sure to have document compatibility issues when sending documents to those who are still using an earlier version of Office, but Microsoft has already released viewers so they can at least work with the brand new documents.  That’s not the case with Windows Mobile devices, however, so if you upgrade to the new version of Office you’d better output your documents in an earlier version or you won’t be able to work with them on your Windows Mobile device.  CNET is reporting that Microsoft has stated it will be the middle of 2007 before Windows Mobile will be updated to handle the newer formats.  Oh and you Mac owners, fugeddaboutit!
