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.

That absolutely makes the most sence. But, and here is a big but, how will they distribute them? Apple requires 30% off the top of any purchase price plus a portion of subscription revenue and ad revenue. With Android, they could just host it on Microsoft.com, or even in the play store and do whatever they want with it.
