Touch Friendly Office - 04-06-2014

  • Earlier today, ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley reported that the tablet-touch build of Office for Android will land before the touch-ready build for Windows. Yes, this is the real world.
    Microsoft declined to comment. Keep in mind that Microsoft building an Office suite for Android tablets isn’t news. This is a timing issue.
    Of course, Microsoft already offers an app for Android that includes Office capabilities, but Office Mobile — which existed for iOS before Office for iPad was released — is a smaller affair. A full suite of tablet-ready Office apps for Android will be a course correction.
