Great news !! Nokia conversations confirms that second Microsoft Apps update for Symbian/Nokia Belle devices excluding N8, E6 and 500 is now available via OTA or Nokia suite.
This update is something everyone was looking up to, as it brings much-needed native support for Microsoft Document,Excel and Powerpoint to Symbian Belle devices. And this is the for the first time that this happened on any other OS than Windows Phone OS.
Office Mobile apps will also be available from the Nokia Store in just a few weeks. Seems that huge update size (50 MB +) which installs on C drive is a constraint for N8, 500 and E6. So may be N8, 500 and E6 user are supposed to load it from Nokia store (Well just a guess) later.

Until now you could only get the full Microsoft Office Mobile app on Windows Phone, but not anymore. We are happy to announce that from today, the Nokia 701, Nokia 700, Nokia 603, Nokia E7, Nokia X7, Nokia C7, Nokia Oro, and Nokia C6-01 will also get this much sought after collection of productivity apps. You can get them using the Nokia Software Update tool on your smartphone, or connecting your phone to the Nokia Suite on your PC.
If you’re a Word user, you’ll appreciate the fact that with Word mobile, you can save or send documents while preserving tables, SmartArt and charts, or the pinch/zoom functionality to easily view and edit documents.
In PowerPoint mobile, you can edit presentation texts and speaker notes, or use the Outline view to quickly browse through slides. With Excel mobile, you can create charts, or insert formulae and view rich data and charts from anywhere.
Another really convenient feature of Office Mobile is that it gives you a single view to documents – whether they’re stored on your phone as files, as email attachments, or on your company SharePoint site.
There are a variety of third party apps or native apps on other platforms that go as far as allowing you to edit, but in my opinion, it’s just not the same. If you’re working on a Word document, nothing beats using Microsoft’s own app. If Excel is your thing, then you will not settle for anything less than the ability to modify data by accessing more than 110 formulae.
If you have a Nokia N8, Nokia E6 or Nokia 500, we will announce availability for these smartphones later.
