More confirmation for Office for iOS, Android, will be included in Per user licensing


A European Microsoft division had announced that Microsoft will be releasing Office of iOS and Android in 2013. This was quickly shot down by Microsoft however, with  Microsoft’s Frank X. Shaw, head of corporate communications, tweeted on Wednesday that the "information shared by our Czech subsidiary is not accurate," adding that "we do not have anything further to share at this time."

A presentation however marked confidential on the new Office makes it clear that Microsoft will be offering Office as a Service, and that their per user and per household licensing will include mobile devices, including specifically iOS and Android.

Clients for these devices have been rumoured for a long time, and I think given Microsoft’s role as across-platform productivity software publisher, and with more than 1 billion connected devices in 2011, many not running windows, remains inevitable.
