“I’m an intern working at Box.net, and I wanted to share a new tool

that we recently built. I saw that you are interested in using the

iPhone to open word and excel documents, and I thought you might like

to know about Box.net’s new iPhone app. The Box app allows users to

access files stored on Box.net, giving iPhone users the ability to

store and access Word, Excel and PDF documents. Since its stored on

Box.net, the iPhone’s fixed memory is no longer a limitation. I

thought you might want to try it out, or write about it.

You can try it out here: http://i.box.net

After replying to Brian to let him know that I did not have an iPhone he said they also have a demo set up here: http://i.box.net/home/demo for those of us who don’t have an iPhone yet. The demo is slick and I’m pretty sure this software will work on any phone with access to the internet.
