Microsoft working on Office for iPad, say sources

“Microsoft is planning a version of its Office business app for the iPad,” Matt Hickey reports for The Daily.

“According to sources, the tech giant is actively working on adapting its popular software suite for Apple’s tablet,” Hickey reports. “With the iPad making up over 80 percent of the tablet market and millions of people worldwide using Office, that could mean big bucks for the tech giant based in Redmond, Wash.”

Hickey reports, “Microsoft already has numerous popular — and some not so popular — apps available for the iPad. They include Bing, MSN Onit and MSN OnPoint. There are even more available for iPhone, including Microsoft Tag, Windows Live Messenger and Wonderwall.”


If this is true, MS will have acknowledged so many things (realities) with this move.

An interesting extension (correction?) to the video below.

Would be a major step towards the iPad getting into the enterprise.
Apps like Office2, Office HD etc. are pretty good alternatives, but having the original is good karma ;)
