Ballmer Backs Office With No iPad Support


Ballmer Backs Office With No iPad Support

A recent report has talked about how possible is Office for iOS. When asked about the same to Microsoft chief Steve Ballmer, during "new" Office 365 launch, he refused to talk about the same, while sharing his satisfaction about the new offering.

"We have a product that we think makes a lot of sense. We do have a way for people always to get to Office through the browser, which is very important. And we'll see what we see in the future", he said, while talking to media.

It was last year that rumour mills started working, after Microsoft's Czech office openly talked about Office Mobile for Android and iOS, that Office would be coming to iPads and iPhone in March 2013. But, nothing conclusive has been heard about that even after one year. It is believed that the major reason of not pursuing the same is that Microsoft is not that keen to pay Apple commission of 30% on apps sold through its App Store. However, Office was made available on Microsoft's own Surface.

Meanwhile, it has been also announced that the Home Premium version of Office would get more refined integration with its SkyDrive cloud storage service, in addition with Skype calling.
