Microsoft Office for iPhone and iPad coming in Feb/March 2013

The Verge broke an exclusive report this morning having received some information from its Microsoft contacts. Office for iPad has been on the wish list of many users for a long time, and rumors have been going for just as long. The tech site heard that along with a launch on iOS, Microsoft is planning on launching it across Android and WP devices too, with the rollout starting in February/March next year.

Office for iPad/iPhone will be a free download and will allow users to view documents. If users want to create and edit Word or Powerpoint documents, they’ll need to purchase an Office 365 subscription in-app. But, don’t expect a full-fledged PC-replacement program. It’s going to be basic document editing only apparently. We’ll keep our eyes on this news as it develops. Who’s excited?
