Microsoft Launching Office For iPad In November [Rumor]

Microsoft Launching Office For iPad In November [Rumor]

The Daily leaked a screenshot of Office on the iPad back in February.

Following an earlier report from The Daily that Microsoft was working on an iPad version of its Office suite, a new report today claims that Microsoft will launch Office for iPad in November of 2012.

According to BGB:

BGR has learned from a reliable source that Microsoft is currently planning to release the company’s full Office suite for not only Apple’s iPad, but for Android tablets as well. The company is targeting November of this year for both launches.

It is also plausible that Microsoft Office will be coming to the iPhone and iPod touch rather than only the iPad, as we’re told the loading screen in the app clearly said “Office for iOS” and not just iPad.

Microsoft denied The Daily’s Office for iPad story saying that it was “based on inaccurate rumors and speculation.” The news broke leading up to Apple’s third-gen iPad event, and that led some to believe that Microsoft was working with Apple to unveil its new iOS software at the iPad media event.
