Why would Microsoft release Office for the iPad?
jdixon 1 year ago
I know that the reports that MS will be releasing Office for the iPad in the very near future are less than a certainty, but why would Microsoft want to release Office for the iPad? Windows 8 tablets should start showing up in a few months, and having a prime bit of software that could help drive sales available on a competitors hardware doesn't make sense to me. Is this just a rumor, or is it real and I am missing something about why MS would be inclined to do this?
