Yes, I believe that is in place for both Word and Excel. PowerPoint does not do any file modifications, so things would be fine there.
:clap: More good news.

Ah. What more can you tell us about this? Does this mean that carriers etc. who will be giving out PPCs and smartphones with contracts can stop people installing applications that don't come from them? Can you unpack this for us a bit?

Default Outlook upgrade???

Word, Excel and Powerpoint upgrade, but how about Outlook?

Outlook should be upgraded to more closely match PC client version, especially when operating on an Exchange Server.

Any word on "Mobile Outlook"?

Of course there is. The enhancements in email handling and the Contacts interface are all a part of Outlook Mobile. MSN services will be well-integrated in Outlook, and there will be more fields available for contact information.

Great to hear there will be improvements to some of the basic app functions....but WHERE is there info that there will be any changes to Calendar/Contacts/Email etc.?

I didn't see any mention of these changes anywhere I read.

Thanks in advance.

The Keynote is a great place to start. Here's a nice article if you want a bit of an overview at Contacts and Pocket MSN. This is by no means a complete look at all the changes. More will be revealed as time goes on - reviews will begin to surface, etc.
