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.

Indeed a good move in many regards.

I think we see in the future a growing OS fragmention. While the eyecandy and underlying OS becomes a matter of taste, will the "essential" apps for productivity a necessarity. This specifically in regard of devices like Surface AND their competition. There is already a MS Office suite for Mac OS for some time now, so why not Android and hopefully other platforms (I see Solaris there).

Solaris? You'd probably have better chances expecting a Haiku port...
