Since the release of the BlackBerry Presenter and the announcement of the iPad I’ve been thinking more about mobile word processing.

When iPad’s iWork word processing got debuted, I started thinking about how great it would be to get advanced word-processing features on my text-nimble BlackBerry.

Of course, if you’re looking for something more professional, they offer extended versions, right up to full-blown BES support.
