Since the Verizon iPhone is now a reality, here's for the new never: Microsoft will NEVER make Microsoft Office for the iPad. Not only are their developers too stuck on a physical keyboard and mouse, Microsoft doesn't want you to buy an iPad. They won't make it for their Mobile Platform either. They just want you to buy a "regular" computer for that type of task. And it has nothing to do with iPad 1G RAM limits either. It's just that the innovative development occurs at Apple. Microsoft may try to put together something if they kidnap the iWork iOS team but i doubt it. They would just hold them hostage.
