Office for iPad coming on March 27th?

Said not to include Outlook for Email

Microsoft is hosting a media event on March 27th that is said to be focused on mobile and the cloud. The latest media event seems to make perfect sense at the time for Microsoft to finally get out of the way of itself and introduce Office for iPad.

Codenamed “Miramar”, Office for iPad has been rumored for a long time. It is believed that Microsoft will move forward with the iPad Office offer which will include Word, Powerpoint, Excel, and OneNote. It will not include Outlook in the iPad offering, but it is believed that codename “Gemini” which is the Microsoft Touch version of Office will include some sort of an Email client akin to Outlook for the Microsoft platforms.

Previously, it was thought that Microsoft was holding on to releasing the iPad version because it wanted to get its enhanced version for tablets out first. Now it seems that the ability to drive revenue and put up a stand agaist other products that are eating into Office’s market share seem to be the driving factor.

How the Apple version will be sold is believed to be through the Apple App Store and then it might perhaps use a link to Office 365 subscription as part of the purchase process. It does remain to be seen just how well Office might do on the iPad platform, but many Enterprise customers would welcome the addition of office to the iPads that they are already deploying within their Enterprise.
