Palm users looking for more functionality when it comes to handling Office files on the go may now have to wait a bit longer. DataViz recently indicated that the webOS release of their popular document editing software, Docs2Go, may be delayed until early 2010. Although being one of the original Palm Pre launch partners and widely expected to launch this year, apparent issues with coordinating the release with a possibly-necessary webOS ROM update may be cause for the holdup.
Other than this tidbit of information, the company continues to stay tight-lipped about their plans; the webOS teaser page still shows the release as "later this year", so there's still hope they could get their act together for the mobile-office gurus out there. In addition, releasing Docs2Go earlier than later would be a bonus for students and educators, and growing their user base for the upcoming Palm Pixi by offering increased functionality out of the box.
