Mobile office is the mutual product of economic,scientific,and social progress.Mobile office has become a solution that provides users with convenient,prompt,safe,reliable,and reasonably priced communications and office faculty anywhere anytime via the sup port of mobile interconnection platform（MIP）and its applications systems.
When you leave your office to attend meetings or travel on business,what would happen to your business routine?Of course,faxes and e-mails would be still sent to your fax machine or e-mail box,but you cannot read them and make prompt reaction timely.When your clients need you to make some urgent modifications on your work and you are neither in the office nor carrying relevant documents,what can you do?Maybe you have to say“sorry”to the clients.But,your business will be affected,the clients will be unhappy and disappointed because of your delay,and you will lose a lot of business opportunities.
In fact,very frequently,you need to check,reply,distribute,display,modify,or read some materials when you are not in your office.You must get out of this dilemma.The best solution to normally handle your business anywhere anytime and not to disappoint your clients is to let your office“move”with you.Thus,you can have convenient,prompt,safe,reliable,and reasonably priced communications and office faculty anywhere anytime.With the development of communications technology,network application,and wireless interconnection,mobile office has become simpler and smaller,and even can be realized via one mobile phone with data communications function.Thus,mobile office has already been put into your pocket,and office mobility has been realized.
Mobile office has provided people with convenient,casual working environment,but at the same time it still has some unsatisfactory aspects such as mismatching equipment interface（接口,界面） and inadequate battery. Nevertheless,we believe that with technical progress,people can certainly overcome all kinds of difficulties.Mobile office will make your career unimpeded,and will realize the dream of completely free communication.Users will enjoy more colorful life and better working environment,and users' living standard,working efficiency,and even enterprises' production efficiency will certainly be immensely raised.

Mobile office has become a solution [that provides users with convenient,prompt,safe,reliable,and reasonably priced communications and office faculty anywhere anytime via the sup port of mobile interconnection platform（MIP）and its applications systems].在本句中,方括号里由“that”引导的从句作定语修饰先行词“solution”;圆括号里的内容是“with”这个介词的宾语。
2.选B.本题为主要细节正误题。原文第二段第二句说“faxes and e-mails would be still sent to your fax machine or e-mail box,but you cannot read them……”B选项与其意思一致。
5.选D.本题为观点态度推断题。从原文最后一段“people can certainly overcome all kinds of difficulties”可推断,移动办公室的缺点不是致命的,排除A选项;B、C选项在文中无相应论述;最后一段第一句说“it still has some unsatisfactory aspects such as mismatching equipment interface”,由此可知,移动办公室除了有很多优点外也有其缺点。
