Microsoft "Microsoft product manager Petr Bobek has confirmed that the software maker is planning to release native iOS and Android versions of Office 2013 next year. Speaking at a press event in the Czech Republic earlier today, Bobek told Czech site IHNED that native apps will be made available from March 2013." Smart move. There's money to be made here, but I am wondering what kind of functionality they're going to reserve for Windows users.

This is big news, the Microsoft business practice has always been to feed the ecosystem. Office stood up on its own, but has always been a driver for Windows adoption.

Targetting OS-level competitors highlights a shift in thinking high up within Microsoft, and seems like a really good sign for the future.
