Microsoft unveils Office for iPad

The move to the iPad essentially announces Microsoft’s surrender to Apple. For four years Microsoft has struggled with the tablet revolution, first ignoring it, then struggling to catch up in a fast evolving market. But the lack of widespread adoption of Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 has finally pushed Redmond to take the famed ‘if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em’ route.

Office for iPad is available as three apps: Word for iPad, Excel for iPad and PowerPoint for iPad. You can download them for free, but with extremely limited capabilities (and we mean limited – you can’t even create a document). To fully use Office for iPad, users will need to get an Office 365 subscription, which costs $99 a year (that includes five installs on a mobile device, and five installs on desktops and laptops.)
