    I'm not sure if this means Microsoft is surrendering to Apple. I do think it will mark the beginning of a more interesting tablet war.

    You guys might want to consider giving "CloudOn" a try. It let's you open or create Word, Excel or PowerPoint documents. It saves in Dropbox. So far it seems to be great, and best of all, it's free.

    It's in the US one.

    I have to switch to my US App store account to get it, easilly enough to setup and this app is well worth getting.

    US app store accessed and Cloudon installed. Not bad, but I still prefer paid apps such as OfficeHD and QuickOffice, although each has it's limitations. Still, I will persevere with Cloudon for a bit and see how it goes. At least it was free - AT THE MOMENT.

    Cloud on is not bad. Pivot tables in Excel on my iPad ... Wow! Track changes in Word on my iPad. Wow! There is a need when ones business environment is Msoft Office.

    Sent from my iPad2 3G 32 gig (not JB'ed) / using iPF
