    I work in Quality Control and we are looking to go mobile to record data. We will primarily be using Microsoft Office (excel and word) as well as sharing and collaborating over SharePoint. We will only be using these devices within the building and will have access to our network which a SharePoint site is already up and running.

    Can this device use Microsoft Office? It cant be an alternative.

    Does it have a handwriting recognition program already installed or would it need to be purchased separately? (specifically for excel, but not 100% necessary).

    Most importantly, Is editing documents via SharePoint possible? (NOT GOOGLE DOCS) This will be our main task.

    Thank you very much.

    yes, you can open/edit Microsoft office using Nexus 7 but you have to download it from play store.

    as per sharepoint you have to use app like this https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ons.spconnect3

    Uh, no it will not run ms office. If that is a requirement (as opposed to simply editing office docs which is not the same thing) you need to get a windows tablet.

    Tablets are not great for creating content, but it sounds like you would be better suited with a windows tablet to get the full version of office.

    I use my tablet for work but it is normally for taking notes in meetings, having documents to review and make markups (PDF), but no serious editing.

    As for handwriting apps, I have never used anything that actually works well, but they exist. I find swype is the fastest way to take notes.
