Rumours are circulating that Microsoft are about to submit a version of Microsoft Office for the iPad to the App store for approval. The version (pictured above) is said to allow the creation and editing of Word, Excel and PowerPoint files both locally and online.
The app’s user interface is meant to be similar to the current OneNote app, but it has hints of Metro, the new design language that can be seen in Windows Phone and in the as-yet-released Windows 8 desktop operating system.
Notably, a version of Android is “not in the works”.
If true this could give the iPad another advantage in the business world. Only time will tell.
