There have been plenty of Office for iPad/iPhone leaks, but now the CEO of the company behind the productivity suite, Steve Ballmer, has made some very conflicting comments on the possibility of such software. He basically said that he has no comment on the matter, but why? He went on saying that, when asked about Office on iPad, Microsoft is “very glad with the product” that is already out, and that it makes sense in its current form:
I have nothing to say on that topic. We’re very glad with the product, very happy with the product that we’re putting in market. It makes sense on the devices like the Mac and the PC.
You have to keep in mind that this is the same person that laughed at the iPhone after its announcement, and dismissed it as nothing to worry about; we know how that turned out. So while he may just be keeping it a secret, Ballmer also could honestly believe that a world without Office for iPad is perfectly fine for Microsoft. He has made wrong choices in the past, why not add to the list. With so many people currently using iPads in the business place, it makes perfect sense to put Office on iPad. To each their own.
What do you think? Are you interested in what will become of this? Do you want Office for iPad? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.
