Report: Microsoft Office coming to Android November 10th

A rumor last week broke regarding a possible release of Microsoft Office on Android (and other platforms) this November, and it appears the rumor could be spot on. A source of The Daily’s has apparently confirmed a November 10th release for the productivity suite. The development and design of the application are finished, apparently, with just one more stage to go through before it’s ready.

We reckon the app will actually  be completed sometime this September as Microsoft will have to make ample time for Apple to approve the launch ahead of its November 10th release date. Unfortunately that doesn’t necessarily mean the Android version will come any sooner as Microsoft reportedly wants the suite to launch on both iOS and Android simultaneously. [via The Daily]

    Gah, I hate Microsoft, but this could be good. Office is a bit more mature than Google Docs…

    I can get a Windows version through work for $15. I am hoping that the same license will be able to be used with this Android download. The only reason I am interested is in the hopes that this official MS Excel version will support macros, unlike all the currently available versions on the Play store.

      My job used to allow that but not anymore. It was convenient for keeping my personal computer updated with the same version of Office as I was using at work. Knowing Microsoft, however, I doubt we’d be able to use the same license for the Android version but perhaps they’ll give some sort of discount.

    Unless they meet the same price point as Quickoffice and DocToGo … they better offer HUGE features that folks can’t live without. Quickoffice HD on Android and iOS (iPad) is quite nice so MS is going to have to justify switching.

    This is only good if it’s full-featured, making the gap between a pc and a tablet basically nil.

    Why pay for MS Office when I can use Kingsoft Office. I looks and feels just like MS and is absolutely free. It already opens, edits and saves to needed file formats which allows me to edit either on my laptop or tablet. For my two cents MS is a little late on this one.
