Microsoft has announced Office for the iPhone. The app, as demoed in the video above, seems about on par with the windows phone version, though it does appear somewhat more cloud integrated, allowing users for example to see documents they recently viewed on the desktop on their phone, ideal for continuing work you started in the office on the move, and also allowing keeping track of the position you last read a document so you can seamlessly switch from one device to another.

The app is only available to those who subscribe to Office365, which costs about $8 per month and has a bit more than 1 million users. It therefore seems a rather good move for Microsoft to serve the diversity of their paying users.
