    Microsoft preparing to launch the iPad version of Office on the 10th of November


    A couple of weeks ago rumors emerged via The Daily announced that Microsoft has been working on an Office version for the iPad. This news caused a lot of buzz around the Internet and beyond. Back then, Microsoft stated that the information was false, but recent news points strongly into a different direction. Apparently Microsoft will be unleashing the iPad version of Office in the App Store on the 10th of November.

    “Microsoft will launch Office for iPad on Nov. 10, The Daily has learned. This follows reports earlier this month that a late fall release was likely.”

    The work on the app is now officially done and the software has been forwarded to a team for testing. When it will receive the green light from testing, it will move on to the Apple store, to get the Cupertino headquarters approval.

    A lucky source has already managed to take a peek at the Office tablet version and stated that the images he stumbled upon are incredibly similar to what The Daily publication published back in February.

    On top of that, Microsoft seems to be working on an iOS app that will mimic Outlook, and will be entitled “OWA Mobile Client for iOS”. The iOS versions of Office, Outlook plus Lync will most likely embed a lot of the Metro interface style. The Office tablet app will enable users to work on documents in popular text editing programs like Word, Excel and PowerPoint files.

    Even if Apple offers some similar apps for text editing, Microsoft’s version will certainly prove very popular among tablet users.
