Microsoft Unveils Office for iPad

As expected, Microsoft today announced Office for the iPad at a press event in San Francisco led by CEO Satya Nadella.

As expected, Microsoft officials today unveiled Office for Apple's iPad, breaking with the company's past practice of protecting Windows by first launching software on its own operating system.

The announcement came at a press event in San Francisco led by CEO Satya Nadella. The suite is slated to be available on the App Store at 11 a.m. PT, 2 p.m. ET.

The suite is available for all users to download for free to read and present content, but will rely on what the company calls a "freemium business model" tied to an Office 365 subscription for content creation and editing.
