I do not want Cloud computing since most of the time the tablet will not have access to the Net.In my experience, so far, nothing is perfect. If your Android device is a tablet running Kitkat 4.4, then you should be able to use Microsoft's own, free, Word/Excel/Powerpoint Preview apps, which are currently in generalized beta testing. I have tried, WPS Office, Textmaker/Planmaker/Presentations Mobile (paid app), DocsToGo (paid app), QuickOffice, Olive Office Premium (IMO the worst of the lot so far), all with varying degrees of success.

WPS Office came with the tablet.Right now I am just looking at free apps. Any yes I know that no Android app for this work is "perfect" for my needs, but I any "new" to using a tablet for this kind of work.
Yes I know about MSO for Android KitKat. I do not know if I want to use it though.
I have found an article about the advantages to have a bluetooth keyboard for a tablet or even a smartphone. I have not read it yet, but one good thing about my tablet [which came Thursday] is the fact that it has a case that has a keyboard attached to it. Here is a link to the page for this tablet at Tigerdirect.com.

So this posting was really about trying to find the "best" option[s] for my "office needs" with free apps and maybe really low costing paid apps. It will be nice to see a LO for Android app, whenever it comes out. I tried AOO for Android [last year] without a bluetooth keyboard and a slower processor than the new tablet. It was a failure. I will download both AOO and EuroOffice for Android to see which one might work. This Tuesday is the first meeting that I want to try using the tablet instead of hauling a backpack containing the laptop.
Actually yesterday was the first time I used my tablet, either one, for dealing with my Gmail when I was not at home.
Now I want to get it to do the wordprocessing "stuff" I took my laptop to deal with. Maybe I will even find an offline HTML editor. That would help with some of the other "stuff" I deal with.
