App Store Poised to Welcome Microsoft Office for iPad
Based on new images leaked to the web on Tuesday, it appears as though a new iPad-optimized Microsoft Office suite is on its way to the Apple App Store.
Those who've tinkered with the new offering tell News Corp's "The Daily" that the forthcoming release will be an impressive one and a particularly hot commodity among iPad owners.
"A brief hands-on with a working prototype of the software revealed a number of new things," reveals Matt Hickey of The Daily. "The app’s user interface is similar to the current OneNote app, but it has hints of Metro, the new design language that can be seen in Windows Phone and in the as-yet-released Windows 8 desktop operating system."
Interesting enough, in case you're wondering, sources say that Microsoft has no plans to offer an Android version of Office at this time.
As of this writing, there is no conformation of a release date for the sophisticated Office suite to hit the Apple App Store, but we do know that the design team has signed off on the package and its ready for release. So it's highly possible - if not probable - that the release could come within days.
