SonyEricsson has won a license to use Stellent’s ‘Outside In’ technology. The mobile manufacturer will add the application to its Symbian-enabled P800 smartphone.
Outside In will allow users to gain access to over 70 file formats via their mobile handset, including PDF. It includes access to Microsoft Office documents, even though the handset’s Symbian platform is a direct rival to Microsoft’s PocketPC 2000.
The application could prove very popular for corporate users, as it would them to view documents created in Office as well as retrieving email attachments, without having to access the actual application.
