Office-Word-iPadFollowing decades of leadership under Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer, Microsoft is now headed by a new CEO named Satya Nadella. Despite being on the job for a short amount of time, Nadella is preparing for his first live interview at a so-called special event. And he could enter the scene with a bang… 

According to The Verge, Nadella has invited members of the press to a “special cloud- and mobile-focused media event” in San Francisco on March 27th. There, sources familiar with Microsoft expect that the highly-anticipated Office for iPad suite will be unveiled for the first time.

Per the report:

We understand the iPad variant of Office will be similar to the iPhone version, and will require an Office 365 subscription for editing. We’re told that document creation and editing is fully supported for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps. Overall, the interface and features are expected to be similar to the existing iPhone version.

Will you purchase Office for iPad?
