Microsoft Product Manager Confirms Office for iOS in March 2013
Microsoft product manager Petr Bobek revealed that Microsoft plans to release Office 2013 for iOS in March, reports The Verge.
Bobek made the comments at a press event in the Czech Republic earlier today.
A press release, seen by The Verge, from Microsoft's Czech Republic team confirms the availability for iOS and Android. "In addition to Windows, Office will be also available on other operating systems, Windows Phone, Windows RT, Mac OS, Android, iOS and Symbian," says Microsoft, while separately noting that there will also be a new version of Office Web Apps too. Office for iPad has long been rumored to be in the works, offering iOS users a way to access Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents from Apple's tablet and phone devices.
Previously, Microsoft denied rumors of the app despite several leaked screenshots.
