Microsoft Office to Arrive on iPad Sooner Than Expected?

Microsoft Office for iPad, codenamed 'Miramar', may hit the market before the company's touch-first version of Office, codenamed 'Gemini', according to Mary Jo Foley.

Originally, Ballmer wanted the Metro-Style/Windows Store version to launch first; however, he may have had a change of heart.

According to one of my contacts, Ballmer OK'd the suggestion by the Office team that they'd bring Office for iPad to market as soon as it was ready, even though that would likely mean before the Windows 8 version. I'm hearing that new date for Office for iPad is some time in the first half of calendar 2014. (My sources last summer were hearing Office for iPad wouldn't debut until Fall 2014.)

It's unclear how Microsoft will make Office for iPad available. However, Foley says it probably will require an Office 365 subscription and it may save files by default to OneDrive (the soon-to-be-renamed SkyDrive).

Microsoft has already made Office Mobile available for iPhones and Android phones, with an Office 365 subscription.

I think it's great and nothing out there compares to Microsoft office. There's no pad like iPad and no phone like iPhone and definitively love iOS and there is no office suite like Microsoft office. I am very happy this finally happen. I used my pc or my Mac when I needed to really use office and any office expert can tell you there is just no substitute and not even the apple version of it is as good. All the other hardware they make I love but Microsoft office is the best in the productivity category. Don't hate me now.

Why would we hate? You don't assume like Tony would, but other than that I find office a bit hard than pages compared.

Some people are born to hate, no matter what they'll still talk shit and complain. Start appreciating, why always talk shit, lets live with love peace and prosperity.

Talk about hating when you sound like it, some of us are saying we are happy with what we have and how microsuck think now is the time when we already have something like that.
