About a week ago when I wrote a review of the HP TouchPad I mentioned that while HP had positioned the tablet as a “professional” device it lacked the capability to edit Microsoft Office documents. Well, that appears to have been corrected as HP announced an update to Quickoffice that will allow for the editing of Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel formatted documents. The update should be available now and best of all there’s reportedly no charge.
In other HP TouchPad news, for those of you who missed out on the first batch of six free apps, HP has made more available. There’s no guarantee of how long supplies will last though.
