OnLive, better known for bringing games to our TVs and iPads, is moving into personal productivity. OnLive investors include Warner Bros., Autodesk, Maverick Capital, AT&T, British Telecommunications (BT), The Belgacom Group, HTC and Juniper Networks.
ZDNet on the new service:
“What makes this service and iPad app so unique is that it allows you to run Windows and Microsoft Office, even if you don’t own either one. The free service gives you full access to the Office apps, and up to 2 GB of free document storage. Paid service with greater storage capacity is in the works for those who need more space.
Using Microsoft Word, Excel, and Powerpoint in OnLive Desktop is just like using them in Windows, because that’s what you are doing. The iPad 2 is just the window into the OnLive system.”
