It's no secret that the proportion of information workers who are mobile or working outside of headquarters continues to grow. Whether they are working from home, going where opportunity leads, or just working in different locations, they need the ability to connect to data and collaborate with each other as seamlessly as possible.
Office 365 is inherently capable of being accessed from anywhere with an Internet connection, whether from PCs, browsers, or mobile devices. You don't have to deploy special technology or require users to sign in to a VPN. Mobile access to Office 365 is built in.
Real-time mobile device access to email, calendar, contacts, and tasks is provided via Exchange ActiveSync® to wide range of mobile devices, including Windows® Phone, Nokia E and N series devices, Palm devices, Apple iPhone and iPad, and certain Android phones. Blackberry devices are also supported on certain plans.
Whether they are using Internet Explorer, Safari, or Firefox, users can get the full Outlook Web App experience. Very similar to Outlook on the desktop, but designed for speed and ease of use through the browser, Outlook Web App provides presence information, MailTips, Global Address List access, and more. Certain levels of Office 365 also include Office Web Apps for reading and lightweight editing of Office documents through the browser.
Working remotely means staying productive even when you don't have an Internet connection. And that's the great thing about combining Office 365 with Office Professional Plus on the desktop. Users don't need a connection of any kind to create and edit documents using the power of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio, and all the other great Office applications they know and love. Cached Exchange Mode lets Outlook users work with email even when they are offline. And, SharePoint Workspace enables them to edit and manage documents stored in SharePoint and synchronize when they reconnect.

Thanks for reading,

Perfect, when will we can test it !!!
This is wonderful and such innovation needs to be incorporated in the development strategies of States
We are now using Outlook 2010 at our office and one of the features we like very much are the social connector (especially the LinkedIn connector) and the Skype addin tool. Will these also work on OWA in the (near) future ?
Good, I'd like to know how to access to Office 365 webapps(besides outlook) from anywhere. I know I can use Sharepoint to open existing document from thge webapp but isnt there a place in the Office 365 portal where I can choose to create a new office document from any webapps ?
AUTHOR: Allen with the Office 365 Group at Microsoft Reposting from Microsoft Office 365 Blog It's no
What's about anywhere 'Access' in Office 365? Will it be possible, to use Access 2010 web databases with Office 365?
@Mikael: thanks for your excitement, more folks will be allowed into the beta as we go along, and the product will be available in 2011 or subscription.
@Michael: Thanks too, not sure what you mean by "Develpment strategies of States"
@Martin: Yes, absolutely! These are Outlook tools that connect completely independently from Exchange, so they work the same whether you have on premise Exchange or hosted.
@Joffrey: When you log into your Office 365 account from "anywhere", from your Office 365 console you can chose to go to view your mail and calendar, your sharepoint home, or download the lync client, etc. If you go to your sharepoint site you can create a new document in any Document Library you have by selecting "Create new document" and you then whatever one you want (options for available new docs specified in settings). These will default to opening in the Office client though, unless you don't have it installed. Web Apps are most for editing and viewing, less so that creating.
@Daniel: Access is indeed available in Office 365, you can store Access Databases on you SharePoint site. Read more and watch a video here in our Top 10 Series -> community.office365.com/.../more-office-365-answers.aspx
is there any improvements in voice recognization?
@Somu: Could you clarify your question? Voice integration is a part of Windows Phone 7, which works great with opening your email, calendar and calling your contacts, which can be stored in Exchange Online as a part of Office 365. As for the PC, Windows 7 has speech recognition built into the operating system, which can be used to control almost all functions of the computer. But neither of these directly involve Office 365, and there is no added functionality or features that it includes.
So, I have been trying to sign up for Beta 365 and I have never recevied an email with the login information..is there a limit of how many can sign up?
Yes rufusr, read our FAQ here. community.office365.com/.../top-10-questions-beta-edition-part-1.aspx
My company is currently a full BPOS customer. Our sales team around the country uses iPads. With Office365 will they be able to open and edit Word, Excel, Powerpoint from a browser on the iPad? If so, will they be able to save files up to a WebDav server instead of online repository only? I've tried using officelive.com with iPad, but it doesn't work.
My BPOS sales person gave me access to his Office365 Sharepoint server. I was able to open Word and Excel docs from my iPad from Sharepoint, but I couldn't edit them. Keyboard input would not work.
Silly question i'm sure but I take it the clients must have Office 2010 Pro installed to make use of Office 365?
There is a list of 39 countries where Office 365 will be available yet this post talks about it being available anywhere. Does that mean the administrator must be located in one of those countries but that users can be located anywhere?
We have a Microsoft EA agreement but only have Office 2007 installed on our 500+ workstations. It is possible that the majority of our users do not need the robust functionality of the desktop Office version, but in our experimenting with OWA as an option to Outlook, we found the deficiencies to be too significant to make OWA a practical alternative for our Outlook users. Is there a published list of feature comparisons for the features in Office 365 and Office 2010?
