This one seems a bit likely given the source of the image and report. The Daily, which is the iPad-exclusive news publication, got the first look at the application. According to The Daily, the application is on its way to the App Store and should be approved in the near future.
The Daily says that they spent time with a working MS Office for iPad prototype. As you would expect from the application, it lets you create MS Office files (Word, Excel, PowerPoint). They can be edited both locally and online. However, the report says that ti’s not known whether Microsoft will support other apps in the Office suite.
Interestingly, while Microsoft Office is on the way for iPad, it’s not in development for Android.
For now, all we know is that the application is ready for App Store approval, but there is no word on when it will hit, other than sometime “in the coming weeks.”
