Google Docs Editing for Android and iPad

Google announced that it will soon add support for editing documents in the mobile Google Docs.

"Today we demonstrated new mobile editing capabilities for Google Docs on the Android platform and the iPad. In the next few weeks, co-workers around the world will soon be able to co-edit files simultaneously from an even wider array of devices."

It's interesting to see that the updated Google Docs will support the iPad, but it won't be available for iPhone and iPod Touch. Right now, the mobile version of Google Docs shows a read-only view of your documents and you need to install third-party apps to edit your documents.

Google says that more than 3 million businesses use Google Apps and that the number of Google Apps users is about 30 million. It's not clear if Google Docs editing will only be available for Google Apps users, but it doesn't make any sense to add some unnecessary limitations to a feature that will make Google Docs much more useful.
