With the picture floating around from The Daily and their supposed image a native Microsoft Office for iPad App, there is quite a bit of speculation pointing towards it being true. Although Microsoft denies it… why wouldn’t they offer it? It would be a huge revenue stream. Plus, even though I have the Mac Office Suite (Pages, Numbers and Keynote), there’s no denying the popularity of wide use Microsoft Office.
I remember my first business trip late last year when I left the laptop and did a solo flight with the iPad. I was a bit nervous because my laptop had been my life line. Besides its compact, sleek style and outstanding battery life, the ability to buy an app for under $10 that allows you to create, edit, save and email documents from Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint as well as the iWork Suite) is downright awesome.
It is the best office replacement for iPad 2 and iPad. Add in the ability to sync with your desktop and it’s downright genius. When I got to the meeting and pulled out the iPad with keyboard, the execs where not only impressed, but very jealous. I never looked back. The iPad is the only mobile office tablet I need. Apple’s Office iWork is also a great option if you want to throw down a few more dollars.
