Office for iPad — which I’ve recently heard is codenamed “Miramar” — isn’t dead. In fact, it’s likely to make it to market ahead of Microsoft’s touch-first version of Office (codenamed “Gemini”) according to a couple of my sources.
Given iOS’ significant lead in enterprise, it’s about time Microsoft got a foothold in the office of the future. Then again, iOS and Android have both dominated that space without Office. I’d love to see the figures for Surfaces in enterprise for comparison, but it doesn’t appear that users are begging for PowerPoint.
