Microsoft is unclear about Office for iPad leak
posted by Michael H. / Feb 21, 2012, 2:33 PM
Microsoft has come out and denied that the leaked images are real. In talking to the New York Times, a Microsoft spokesperson said, "The Daily story is based on inaccurate rumors and speculation." And, Microsoft also told ZDNet that the image is fake. Some would say that this would wrap up the story without trouble, but the thing is that just because the image is fake doesn't mean that Office for the iPad is fake.
Microsoft never specifically denied that Office for the iPad was in the works, which does mean a lot coming from the tech giant. So, we wouldn't be surprised if Office for the iPad made an official appearance soon enough.

As long as they make Windows 8 on ARM (or tablet PC's) as optimized and fluid as the experience on Windows Phone, I still see no reason for me to buy an iPad :) iPad is the beast among tablets, but it's still just a crippled (mobile) OS, not the whole experience. I want the real deal, I want Windows 8. So ... I'll get my Office anyway ;)

I don't see this happening. The iPad is the antithesis of the PC, and Office is the meat and bones of a Windows PC. If MS revamps Office to work well without a mouse & hot keys, it would drive more people away from the PC. So, they might get $150 for a version of iPad Office, but they would probably lose as much or more on the PC side. Also, who is ready to pay $150 for a mouseless, mono-tasking version of Office on a tablet?

iPhreaks. Double the price for anything available anywhere for any other OS, slap it on iOS, and they buy it in droves. I need to patent and copyright iPhreaks, BTW

No doubt it is fake but as with all things apple just a sniff of something or rumour builds months of ifan frenzy,mass periods of ifan drooling lead to mass population dehydration and ultimately the end result of dissapointment when what they thought it would or could be will never actually exist.
