Microsoft Office Mobile Now Available for Android Phones and 2 Other Hot Stocks to Watch
Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ:MSFT): Current price $32.00
Microsoft Office Mobile is now available for Android phones. The application sports optimized versions of Excel, Word, and PowerPoint, and lets users make simple edits to documents, open email attachments, and automatically save their progress to Microsoft’s online cloud storage service, SkyDrive. Also included is a recent documents tab, through which users can retrieve documents from a computer, as well as a presentation view for PowerPoint. The only problems are that while Office Mobile is a free application, users must subscribe to Office 365 and be running Android OS 4.0 or later.

Riverbed shares are down almost 12 percent in late-morning trading Wednesday after the computer networking equipment manufacturer released its second-quarter report and forecast indicating that it is being impacted by lower U.S. government spending on its products.
