Microsoft Planning To Release Office For iOS And Android Tablets In November

BGR’s sources have said that Microsoft is making Office suites for both the iPad and Android tablets. The source has even seen it run on an iPad, and it looks a lot like previous leaks have shown it. It has a very Metro-inspired start screen, which really doesn’t match either iOS or Android. However, the actual UI has not been shown off. Also, Microsoft denied that leak was real, so that makes me question the validity of this source.

They are trying to release it by November, for both platforms. And considering the start screen of the iPad says “Office for iOS,” there might be a version for iPhone and iPod Touch. If so, maybe there will be an Android phone version too. We’ll see if it’s better than QuickOffice, as the Windows Phone Office really isn’t too great.
