Could anybody please show us how to install Microsoft Office Mobile on the Note PRO 12.2 LTE? I keep getting an error saying that the app cannot be installed since the device is not a phone.

From what I've seen on the G+ community, you can install it but it will only function as a viewer on devices over 10". Because of that I have not bothered with it, but I will look and see what I can find out for you.

EDIT: It installed fine for me, but it does function only as a viewer with an Office 365 subscription. To install, I just opened the Google + app. Went to the Microsoft Office for Android Tablets group. You will need to join it if you haven't already. Once you have accessed the group, click the drop down on the header and follow the links in the instructions to become a tester and install the apps.

I have read it somewhere that it is only for the tablet with a size of 7 inch to 10 inch. So you have to wait till ms comes up a new version for all kinda devices.

I just downloaded Word, Excel, and Powerpoint from the Play Store and it runs great on the Note Pro. I have a valid Office365 Subscription and I must say it's actually much better than the Hancom suite that's on the tablet.

tdetroit, can you save a file to the SD card with those programs? I'm having a heck of a time trying to save a file using hancon or office suite 8. Both of those can not save to the SD card because of kitKat. Office Suite doesn't even save back to Dropbox and once you open a file that was on a SD card it seems impossible to save it anywhere. Until this problem is fixed, we can never use this tablet for real work stuff.

Sure you can. If you are rooted install xsposed and there is a module you can download and enable to allow full access to the ext sd. . The is also a guide here that can show you how to go into the build.prop and edit some stuff to fix. However i didnt have luck with that like others but the module works like a charm and i can save to external with all my apps on kit kat

I m xsposed download just search kit kat external and you should find it. .or kitkat sdcard
