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.

Yes, the situation with office editors is pretty pretty pretttty shitty on mobile platforms, however I doubt they'll have too many fans if they continue with the ridiculous (at least for me) pricing; either that or it will be heavily pirated, as it happens with PCs - although in recent years I notice more and more people install Libreoffice. Nice!

Talking of which, myself I'm still waiting for Libreoffice, either as native app on Android or as a web service/frontend, the latter would be super-sweet!

Try Softmaker Office for Android. Their Windows and Linux versions have *flawless* MS Office compatibility (no macro recorder though), so I assume the Android version also scores high on that (cannot check it myself due to having no Android devices).
