Office For iPad Coming This Year

Microsoft will bring its popular suite of business-centric software to the iPad, and potentially, the iPhone.

Microsoft Office has been available on Apple's Mac operating systems for years, and now the company is ready to bring that same level of platform support to the iPad.

BGR reports that an app entitled "Office for iOS" will be available later this year, potentially as early as this summer. The Daily also captured a picture of what appears to be said app.

Microsoft is not currently playing that hard in the tablet market, but that is quickly and vastly going to change. The software giant will launch Windows 8 later this year, and a huge chunk of the strategy for this new OS is tablets.

For the first time, it seems that Microsoft developed its new Windows platform with a non-traditional computer platform as the primary focus. Tablets are key to Windows 8's success. Desktops and laptops appear to be secondary.

So it will be a balancing act for Windows as it strives to make money by offering various products on operating systems like iOS, while also making sure Windows 8 has enough competitive advantages to make it marketable. But Office is something that should not be exclusive to Microsoft platforms.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
