Microsoft Office reportedly bound for iOS, Android in 2013(Read article summary)
A Microsoft Office app is headed for Android and iOS, one news outlet has alleged. But Microsoft says the Office report is inaccurate.
According to The Verge, which has obtained a press release from the Czech offices of Microsoft, a mobile version of the Office suite will launch for the Google and Apple mobile operating systems in March of next year. The Verge reports that Microsoft product manager Petr Bobek separately confirmed the existence of iOS and Android apps at a press conference in the Czech Republic.
Thus far, the Microsoft press team in the US has sought to play down the rumors.
"The information shared by our Czech Republic subsidiary is not accurate," Microsoft corporate communications honcho Frank X. Shaw tweeted today. "We have nothing further to share."
