    hopefully this will also open up uploading to google docs. I bought extra storage for pics/vids/files and so far I can only upload pics to picasa and vids to youtube(which sucks BTW) but want to send vids and files to my docs for safe keeping of the originals. And yes creating and editing a doc is also great, but mainly uploading.

      Google is not responsible for your Motorola phone. Buy a Nexus One if you want to blame Google for your phone updates.

    Looks like Google is going after the business crowd in a serious way now. Time to take RIM down a few more pegs.

    Wait a minute, you mean all this time people have been unable to edit Google Docs using their Android phones? Sorry people, that’s really lame.

    Just yesterday I was reading an article about Google blaming the Safari browser on iPhones for their inability to edit Google Docs.

    As a BBerry user who has been strongly considering going Android, this news is very attractive. Our company uses GDocs regularly and we’d really like to be truly mobile, which requires being able to edit/compose new docs from a smartphone. Just another reason that Android is looking better all the time.

      Well, you can ACCESS your docs from your Android, no breaktrough here I think.. Just point your browser to the mobile Docs page, and there they are..
