Steve Ballmer Suggests Microsoft Office May Come to the iPad
PC World

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer recently hinted at a conference that Microsoft may be porting Office to the iPad and other non-Windows devices. Ballmer made the comment when he was talking about what he terms "upside opportunities" that exist for Microsoft.

Ballmer said, "We don't have our heads in the sand." He also noted that, "[Microsoft is] working on everything that you think we should be working on."

Ballmer didn't specifically say Office will be coming to the iPad, but consumers have been clamoring for it for a while. Some believe Microsoft has held off on porting Office to the iPad so far out of fear of hurting Windows 8 and Windows RT tablet sales. Since the sales both those tablets are already very bad it would be hard to hurt them much more.
