Should be ready by November

Microsoft is reportedly putting the finishing touches on Office for Android and iOS.

The ubiquitous Office suite for mobile operating systems could be ready by November, but there is no official confirmation yet. In fact, Redmond was quick to deny the BGR report, but this is not the first such rumour, and other leaks also add weight to the latest unconfirmed reports.
