    It was The Daily that first broke the story of Microsoft Office coming to iPad back in February, only to have it shot down by Microsoft’s denials. Now, however, it looks like The Daily was right all along, and it has another scoop today with the news that Office for iPad will be launching on November 10, 2012. The Daily says that it has learned that the Microsoft Office Mobile development team completed its work last month on the app, as did the design group. The app is now with a “usability teamâ€, which will be looking into how the app software is compliant with the Metro design language, and whether or not any changes are needed. Once it meets with approval from that team, it will then be sent for App Store approval at Apple. As noted by The Daily and reported the other week, BGR has also received word from its sources that the iPad version of Office is “almost identical†to those photos first published by The Daily in February.

    Too true! Microsoft do like to charge! Let's hope £10 per app like the iWork's apps.

    This is good news, all other similar apps have incompatibilies especially on highly demanding files.

    Yes, unfortunately my school excel docs aren't supported. Let's hope it's not too expensive

    Like the majority of those who have posted, I too am concerned about the pricing from Micro$oft. I hope they don't jack it up.

    $20 for the whole suite is the sweet spot for me :)
