Satya Nadella is planning to host his first press event as Microsoft CEO next week. The software maker has been inviting members of the media to a special cloud- and mobile-focused event in San Francisco on March 27th. Nadella is expected to discuss Microsoft’s "mobile first, cloud first" strategy, and there will be some major news ahead of the company’s Build conference in early April. Sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans tell The Verge that the event will mark the introduction of Office for iPad.

Meanwhile, Office for Metro is nowhere in sight.

When I was using my iPad, I carried it to several Linux and Python conferences as well as to a year-long weekly class, and took page after page of notes using Notability.

Granted, using the on-screen keyboard wasn't as comfortable as my current Chromebook, but it was more than adequate - enough that I didn't bother with buying a physical keyboard. Not a workstation replacement, of course, but certainly fine when portability matters.
