Is Apple Really Banking on Microsoft Office Suite?

The rumor mills are on full churn and this time the gossip surrounds the renowned web development company, Microsoft. Though there hasn’t been any official announcement from Microsoft’s side, but gossip mongers are saying it out loud- Microsoft is developing an Office Suite for Apple’s iPhones and iPads. And this time there is an evidence of to support this rumor.

Mac4Ever, a French website dedicated to IT, has got its hand on a bunch of references that speak of Microsoft and ASP.Net based applications that have been designed keeping in mind the specifications of iOS, the operating system for Apple’s iPhone and iPad devices. In their first look, these documents appeared to incorporate a comprehensive list of product support documents.

This, however, sounds strange as Microsoft has not even mentioned once about any plans of launching Office apps for mobile platforms other than its own. So, a support document for a product called ‘Excel for iPad definitely calls for some serious sniffing and nose poking.

This can, however, either be perceived as a strange and uncalled for mistake on part of one of Microsoft’s employees or the day is nearing when Microsoft will take everyone by surprise and launch its Office applications for non-Microsoft mobile devices.

Numerous versions of Microsoft Office apps are already available for use on Mac and Apple platforms but Microsoft has majorly favored Windows as a primary platform for running the Office Suite.

This could be great news for the Apple users, but sadly they have to wait for a confirmation from Microsoft’s side.
