Hi all,

This week's poll is about news that Microsoft plans to release Office for iOS and Android sometime next year. Discuss here if you'd be interested in Office as an App, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

I should have checked the post before casting my vote as I wouldn't buy Office for a smartphone, but I would for IOS6, as in the iPad, which is sadly lacking in a decent office suite. It would be interesting to see how much they would charge for it though, as there's no way the average IOS/Android user would put up with the usual M$ pricing.

Yeah, cause MS is the only company in the world that gouges customers..........LOL

My wife has an iPad so I know exactly what that device is worth and all I can say is, they are way overpriced. I personally wouldn't value one at even 50% of what they're charging for them.

How charged with punishments the scroll,

I have used the mini office that they used to have on Blackberry devices. It came in handy a couple of times, I think it was called the lite version. If I remember correctly it was free at the time, but didn't have all the options. It was convient at the time.

When working for a cell-phone repair company (3 years ago---very dark days), I got to tinker with the version of Office Mobile for Windows Phone 6. Not very impressive. I've used QuickOffice since my PDA days and found it far more usable on a hand-held device than anything MS could come up with...

I wouldnt because windows overprices it's office software and even for a computer that lasts ages it's seen as a rip off so i doubt anyone would spend a load of money on it for a phone because people are constantly getting new phones. so you'll lose what was on it which isn't cool. it would be better if you could just log onto a device like apple and have all of your software apps and music and video but with using android so if you buy office you dont lose it when you get a new phone.

Why would I want to install a virus delivery client like Outlook on my smartphone?
