Office could be finally coming to the iPad

Microsoft launched a version of Office Mobile for iPhone users last summer, but it was only available if you were an Office 365 subscriber. Now the word on the street is that Microsoft's new CEO, Satya Nadella, might be unveiling an iPad version of the Office suite at a press conference in San Francisco on March 27.
 
If true, this will be the first major product announcement for the new CEO and the first time a version of the big money making Office suite was offered for the iPad.


 
Microsoft has been hesitant to roll Office out on non-Windows platforms, but has no problem making the productivity suite available on its also-ran Surface 2 and Surface 2 Pro tablets. With PC sales on the decline, Microsoft is getting pushed to roll out Office for other platforms where the software giant can grab more customers.
 
Analysts think that Microsoft has given up as much as $2.5 billion a year in profits by not offering Office on the iPad.
