Microsoft Office for iOS, Android coming in November: report

A new report suggests Microsoft may have a version of its popular MS Office in the works for the iPad and Android tablets.

According to Boy Genius Report, the app is scheduled to be released in November this year for both Apple and Google’s mobile platforms.

They also say a source has actually seen Office running on an iPad.

Microsoft hasn’t confirmed this, so it’s anyone’s guess whether the rumour is true. But a November launch timeline would correspond with their scheduled launch of Windows 8. 

Also, alternatives have emerged for word processing, spreadsheets and presentation applications on mobile devices while the leader in traditional productivity software, Microsoft, stood on the sidelines.

Would you use Office on a tablet? Or have you moved on to other alternatives like Pages and iWork?
