Coming Soon to the AppStore – Microsoft Office

Microsoft have been working on breaking into the iOS market since around November last year, and it looks like we could soon be seeing that ever so popular Office logo in our iOS Device AppStores soon. It’s rumoured, that on launch the iOS variant of the popular app suite will support Word, Excel and PowerPoint files. No news has been released as of yet as to if that will ever been increased to support more Office file types.

The rumours are that interface is similar to that of the desktop variants ‘One Note’, with clear relations to the metro and Windows 8 GUI’s.

It’s going to be interesting to see at which price point Microsoft attack the market at, considering Apples’ own variant have been in the AppStore for sometime now. I am also looking forward to see how well Microsoft integrate cloud based storage and syncing, if nothing else but to judge it against Apple’s iCloud offering.

I’m confident an Android version won’t be far behind…
