Office for Windows Phone being updated in April 2014

geminiZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley has been handed a roadmap for Microsoft’s Office suite.

Most of it is not relevant to Windows Phone, relating to the desktop and Windows RT apps.

What is of note though is that the first mention of a Windows Phone update is only in April 2014, suggesting Office for the next version of Windows Phone will be similar to the current one, much like Office for Windows Phone 8 is very similar to Office for Windows Phone 7.

See the roadmap below.

Gemini Wave 1.0 (October 2013): Windows Blue app updates

Gemini Wave 1.5 (April 2014): Office for Mac; Office RT refresh; Perceptive Pixel support; Windows Phone support refresh

Gemini Wave 2.0 (October 2014): Outlook RT; Office for iOS/Android

Previous job posts have however suggested we will see touch improvements for Excel for Windows Phone, but I suspect we will not see much more until next year.
