MS Office on the iPad

February 21, 2012

Suite anticipation – WWW.THEDAILY.COM.

File this under “What on earth is Microsoft thinking?”

I like it and it will spur even faster iPad adoption in the enterprise but it really doesn’t do a whole lot for Microsoft’s own tablet efforts.  Maybe that doesn’t matter as much as continued Office dominance.

The move also makes the iPad even more of an education powerhouse.  While I love Keynote, nobody but other iOS and OSX users could get any of my presentations except as PDFs.

Powerpoint isn’t as good but is everywhere.  With a clean template it’s good enough to make great presentations.

That’s another checkbox checked for an edu tablet.  Coupled with AirPlay and a aTV device attached to a projector and student presentations become even more of a snap on iOS.
