When HP introduced webOS 2.0 yesterday, one of the features the company highlighted was the fact that Quickoffice software would be built in, making it easy to view Office documents without installing any additional software. Need to read that Word, Excel, or PowerPoint presentation your boss just emailed you? No problem.

On the other hand, if you need to edit those docs… problem.

Today Quickoffice announced that its webOS software will only let users view documents at launch. The company plans to offer an upgrade which will let you edit those documents from your phone. The upgrade will be available for purchase “in the near future.”
