Microsoft Rep: Office for iPad is ‘Something We’re Looking At’

Microsoft senior product manager Mike Tedesco revealed during an interview with the web site T3 that a version of Office for the iPad is “something that we’re looking at. Obviously the announcement (of the iPad) is really fresh and there's nothing to announce or nothing that I can talk to you about today.”

Mr. Tedesco added: "We've had tablet technology forever and both Windows 7 and Windows Vista automatically detect that and you can be running your Office on there."

However, as T3 writer Chris Smith said: “Microsoft is, of course, getting pretty excited about the HP Windows 7 tablet that was unveiled at CES so we wouldn't be surprised to see that catered for well before Apple gets any love.”
