    Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer recently revealed that Microsoft is currently developing a "touch first" variant of Microsoft Office for the iPad. Here's a quote with more of the details,

    Supposedly, this version will debut sometime after Microsoft releases a touch-friendly Windows version. This will be a smart move for the Redmond based company to help make sure its Office products continue to evolve into the mobile world. What do you guys think? Sound off if you would like to use MS Office products on your iPad.

      They are about four years late. Many of us have been using an alternate office product and are happy with that. I love QuickOffice pro and that serves my needs. It's great it's coming out and all that but this should have been out a while ago, IMO.

      Be interesting to see what price point it sells for. They have had 3 years to do this why so long!?

      Hope it will be free for those that have 365 Office and iPad as one of the five devices to use 365. Great working on projects, reports. Presentations on long trips, especially with sky drive. If they would only open the door foe a mini 64 GB USB.

      Using CloudOn here. Works great as an alternative way to create Office docs.

      IMHO the killer tablet app for business is the one that delivers all the desktop office tools capability on a tablet... until then my road-warrior packback will always need to carry my laptop as well as my iPad :-(
