Poll: is Microsoft launching Office for iPad today?

By , Jul 16, 2012

Microsoft is unveiling something today, but the company would uncharacteristically release no agenda for today’s presser, which begins at noon Pacific time. A media release only mentions that Microsoft will be making an announcement today and teases “news live from San Francisco via webcast.

It’s gotta be some kind of a biggie as Steve Ballmer, the CEO, “will share the news”, per the release. But what exactly is it? Office for iPad, anyone? It’s a simple YES/NO poll so cast your vote now…

If they were buying Nokia, it would be on the investor site. If Redmond was unveiling Office 15, that would warrant a venue.

We’ve known that Office for iPad has been in the works for some time now, though latest repots have indicated a late-2012 release date.

Granted, it would be a tad peculiar if Microsoft released tablet Office for iPad first, then for its own Surface tablet.

However, bear in mind that the two Office builds are probably being developed by separate teams and as such being scheduled for release independently of each other.

Here, vote now.


Do you think the native Office suite for iPad, officially from Microsoft, is a big deal?

Chime in with your thoughts down in the comments.

    I think that Microsoft will just come up with another tablet. Or release their new OS.

    They might be announcing the price for the surface ? Wat do u think people?

    Ballmer would never bother introducing anything Apple related…

  • JerseyD

    Maybe itll be the release date and pricing for surface?

    I don’t think it’ll have anything to do w windows 8 or windows phone because they just had big events and they gave out a lot of details for them.

    I’m hoping office for iPad or a new Xbox :)

    Well it did not happen and I knew it would not happen…….WHY YOU ASK….??……well that is simple…….Apple has sold about 67.1 Million iPad’s worldwide at of March 31st, 2012……..and the reason that Microsoft will Not Release OFFICE for the iPad, is because Steve Ballmer is too stupid to see that he and Microsoft might actually sell 67.1 Million copies of Office for the iPad in about a weeks time………Steve Ballmer must be the stupidest CEO of all time……..

      Yeah I would buy a Win8 tablet just because of Office.

    • EpicFacepalm

      Also Office is working with the iPad. Onlive Desktop….

    Steve Ballmer will tell us that win8 is something like fault of production AND he is ready to leave MS he´s so sorry for all what he did. Or they bought Sony to extend the creep… windows phone 8 that we all can play PSone games
