As reported a couple months ago by The Daily of a screenshot of Microsoft Office running on the iPad, follow-up rumors have pointed towards a possibility of such a release sometime in November. Sources have claimed to see the software operating on iOS firsthand. There have also been hints at Office for the Android platform as well.
While Microsoft have yet to publicly address this rumor, The Daily has strong claims to this being factual, stating that they have seen and operated a prototype. The benefits of having Microsoft Office on the iPad however, would be beneficial for many of its users considering the overall compatibility issues with Microsoft and Mac users.
