Im trying to figure out what the best office software for a samsung 10.1 would be, ive looked through the reviews on the market and there dosn't seem to be a clear cut winner, lots of complaints on all of the major players.
What are fellow geekzone users using out there and with what results? Looking for editing word and excel mainly, ive noticed they all seem fairly limited in there capabilities :/. I wonder if microsoft will ever release a droid version of word and excel.

I think my transformer came with Polaris office, but i've never used it. Docs To Go is another option.

Seriously though, unless you have a keyboard and a lot of patience, don't bother. Tablets are for consuming content, not creating it.

To be honest its not for me, its for a client who has bought 2. He also got the bt keyboard with it, hes an exec who will use it constantly on the road, he was using a blackberry up until now with a few thousand dollar a month mobile bill for data (and voice).

Most of them are pretty good for word, but excel can be problematic. I have a client that has a Samsung Tab and they use a spreadsheet from an insurance company that has password protected sheets. Only one of the products opened it properly (most just refused to open it at all). THis same product however did not play very nicely with another spreadsheet that had drop down boxes. Unfortunately at the moment it is a compromise. Would be nice if MS made a droid/iOS version. I think the product we ended up with was Docs to Go, but it wasn't perfect.
