    Office Mobile heading to other platforms? | WMExperts

    If it can show powerpoint out the VGA connector, I would buy it.

    It's a pretty safe bet that Microsoft is considering the placement of its applications software on devices that might include the iPad. It is just a matter of time before their system software drives an iPad competitor.

    I think they would be happy to have it on their own devices AND their competitor's devices. The same way Amazon is happy to have us buy books for the Kindle app on the iPad.

    I've been waiting for this for a LONG time. All the apps out there that purport to be Office replacements are, in truth, far from it.

    Cheers,

    BTW, you can do that now by using the Keynote app with your PPT file.

    Cheers,

    yeah, but I want one app that can read, edit, modify, create and show powerpoint 2007. Why is that so hard?

    If the price is not absurd, I'm there. Hope it would have Dropbox support :)

    I like my Documents to Go, but I'd drop it in a heart beat for the "real" thing......

    I dont know about dropbox, but I would expect that it would support sharepoint (corporate hosted web file sharing) and office live (microsoft hosted web file sharing - you get 25GB free storage right now).

    The Office suite would be... sweet. My harshest criticisms of the iPad lie with its productivity capabilities.
