View Full Version : What is Docs To Go Professional Ed?
02-11-2004, 11:50 AM
I just ordered my TH55. Can't wait to get it, upgrading from my N610C. I am currently using Documents To Go v5. I am wondering what exactly Documents To Go Professional Edition is? The DataViz site does not list a "Professional" edition. They list DataViz Office, which includes Beyond Contacts, then the Premium Edition and Standard Edition of DTG.
So, is this just a typo on Sony's part? Did Sony mean to say "Premium" or is there a "Professional" edition that includes Beyond Contacts?

I am almost certain that "Professional" refers to the Premium (http://www.dataviz.com/products/documentstogo/dxtg_pre_desc.html) edition. Even Dataviz refers to it as teh professional version in some places on their site.

I lied. Sorry. See this page (http://www.dataviz.com/products/documentstogo/dxtg_chart.html?version=6.0)
You can upgrade from Professional to Premium for $29.95, and to DataViz Office (Premium + Beyond Contacts) for $59.90.

...here's something about the Documents To Go 6 family that has me puzzled. I am currently using a registered version of Docs2Go 6 Premium. I bought a new TJ-37 and took them up on the free Docs2Go 6 Professional offer.
So I went to DataViz to find out EXACTLY what the difference between the two versions were. You know what happened next. I went Round 'n Round at the website for hours and I couldn't find an answer. As a matter of fact, they don't even LIST a Docs2Go Pro! The original Premium download was saved at 19,826KB. The Docs2Go Pro saved in at 15,683KB. Hmm... Significantly smaller..
I guess my question to ANYONE would be: What is the difference between the PREMIUM version and the PROFESSIONAL version? Is it worth converting over to the Pro version? As it stands it's like a nightmare syncing between my home and work computer. Will they ever offer a "Handheld Overwrites Desktop" in the sync manager? Has anyone converted from Premium to Pro?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I don't have the specifics in front of me, but the Pro version (the free one that comes with the Clies) is a lower version than the Premium version. Seems like PPT support was one difference.
I have DTG Premium. As far as I can recall, Premium lets you use charts in spreadsheets; spell-checking in Word docs; it will also strip out the text in PDF files and leave you with a usable and readable file.. I think you are allowed to insert images.
I love this product. It was a major reason behind my coming back to Palm. I use a lot of tables in my lesson plans and worksheets as a teacher and find the ability to synch files 'as is' a godsend.
Give it a go.

...I guess I'll just stay with the DTG 6 Premium. I guess it just goes to show that "ya get what ya pay for...":D

Premium has Powerpoint support, spellcheck, charting as well as Inbox to Go. Something Professional does not.
