Continued rumors of Microsoft office for both iOS and Android tablets is getting some new life from our sources that say Microsoft is planning to release versions for both platforms. According to the latest we are hearing, we should look for it to arrive in the spring of 2013 in the month of March if everything stays on track.
The latest info suggests that when Office arrives for iOS and Android platforms it will include Excel, PowerPoint, and Word as the core applications. Microsoft, however, has denied that it has a plan for Microsoft Office applications for the iOS and Android mobile platforms. They have suggested that the information isn’t accurate and they have nothing to announce at this time.
We will have to see what happens next; but we have to think that with some of the other recent announcements by Microsoft as of late, it would seem they stand to make a fair chunk of money by releasing it for other platforms rather than keeping it a Microsoft Windows platform exclusive.
You can see we are not the only ones hearing this by looking here.
