While Windows Phone 7, being a Microsoft product, obviously features Office integration so you can view and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint files right on your phone, transferring those files from your PC to your device isn’t that straightforward. You can neither copy-and-paste, nor does Zune sync them. Instead, you had to either email them to yourself, or upload them to SkyDrive.
That is, had. Forum member Thunder_ now developed an application with which you can simply transfer office files directly from your PC to your dev-unlocked Windows Phone. All you need to do is to double-click BookUplaoder.exe on your PC, make sure your phone’s screen is turned on and unlocked, choose the files – and they’ll appear in the Office Hub. Pretty straightforward, and as a bonus, the desktop app also looks really nice and fits in with the design of the Zune client.
So, go ahead and download the Office File Uploader in the forum thread, and be sure to leave the dev some feedback!_________
