Mobile views are enabled by default for most SharePoint lists and libraries. Users can access document libraries, lists, wikis, blogs, Web Parts pages, back-end business data, and sites from their mobile devices. Additional mobile features include:
Users can use the mobile search experience to find people, contact information, and content on SharePoint sites.
Users can subscribe to alerts that are sent by using Short Message Service (SMS). The alerts are sent to users' mobile devices when changes are made to a SharePoint list or item.
With Microsoft Office Web Apps, users can view Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents in mobile browsers.
Note For more information about Office Web Apps, see Office Web Apps (Installed on SharePoint 2010 Products).
