Microsoft Denies Pending Launch of Office for iPad

Rumors are swirling regarding whether Microsoft will release a version of its Microsoft Office software for iPad, but whether or not they will be validated remains to be seen.

Existence of the Microsoft Office Suite for iPad was uncovered in November, according to The Daily, and will be submitted to Apple for approval soon. The iPad version will include Word, Excel and PowerPoint, but it is uncertain whether the software will support other apps, the report said.

While The Daily seems pretty sure of itself, Microsoft denies the statement in its entirety.

A spokeswoman said, "The Daily story is based on inaccurate rumors and speculation," according to The New York Times. She showed a picture of the alleged Microsoft software, saying that it was not, in fact, software designed by Microsoft.

Still, The Daily stands by its story. Peter Ha, tech editor at The Daily, said the Microsoft app was demonstrated on an iPad.

"The launch screen may not be final, but the app itself is real," Ha said. "We were told that the app was done and it was being tested internally," the report said.
