I just saw this on an Android site. Is that true and if so, will it allow you to sync with Windows 7 and backup to your laptop? I was ready to get the Galaxy Note 2 but this could change that for me and millions of others.

As for the original question of a "full version" of Office on WP8, I seriously doubt that is on the drawing board. There is a is a big difference (no pun intended) between a phone screen and either a laptop or tablet. The upcoming version is certainly more touch friendly than any previous version, but it is definitely not meant for particularly small screens and still relies heavily on processor and IO capabilities well beyond any phone.

If MS wants to grab the business users they have with Office and get them on WP and off of BlackBerry and keep them from iOS and Android, they sure better have seamless, fairly enhanced Office on their devices. It is one of the things I am looking to the most."Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."- Ben Franklin.

Unless there is a full Outlook version in Office 365, it will not be complete. I still can't understand the fact you have to go around your elbow to get to your thumb just to sync contacts and calendars from one MS source to another. No I don't have exchange capability.:mad:

Calender - Same deal as contacts.
Tasks - Syncs fine through Windows Live
Notes - this seems to be a bit hazy for me, but I believe they did sync through SkyDrive for me. I see SharePoint and Office 365 options though in the Office Hub, maybe they would work for enterprise?

I understand that there are ways to work around this but it seems to me that if they want to regain a foothold in the business world, this is a necessity. Having exchnage sync is half way there; local sync would finish out the product for us non techie users.
Hopefully this explains my post in more detail.:excl:

However, it will be a "Metro" (Live Apps?) version of it, not the Desktop version of Office. I think the same is expected of Windows 8 RT, that it will include the same Metro version of Office that I don't believe anyone has seen or used. But again, I can already open/edit/save Office documents on my WP7 today.
