BFRA: Microsoft is preparing a new “Office” for Lion and iPad
This one is a Blunt Force Rumor Attack.
According to The Daily, Microsoft may be preparing a series of apps, or a single suite of Office apps to target the iPad market. These apps would directly take on Keynote, Pages and Numbers from the Apple software arsenal. The company is also reportedly prepping an Office Suite update that will add official support for Lion and may be available from the Mac App Store. Apps for the iPad and Mac App store could cost upto US $ 9.99 (the same Apple Charges for its apps) these apps will support sync with Office 360 and will be available before the end of the year 2011
We already deliver Office on multiple platforms and devices and are committed to expanding in the future, but have nothing further to share today,
