Leaked Microsoft Roadmap Says Office For iOS Not Due Until "Fall 2014"

10 April 2013

ZDNet:

Also on the roadmap for fall 2014 is what’s listed as iOS/Android support for Office. One would assume this is the expected and widely rumored Office for iPad release. It could, however, be Office for iPhone and Android phone, given that it’s not listed on the roadmap as being tablet-specific.

Every day, new¬†users are joining iOS and Android. These people are developing habits and workflows that don’t include Office at all. Waiting until late 2014 to address these potential customers feels like an error that is irrecoverable, at least regarding Office in the consumer space.
