Updated: Office for iPad unveiled, brings suite of Microsoft services to Apple's tab

Microsoft has unveiled Office for iPad, as many suspected would be the big announcement coming out of a March 27 press briefing currently underway.

Office for iPad will go live at 11 a.m. PT. Don’t expect a ported Windows app; Microsoft made a point that Office for iPad is uniquely built for the tablet, featuring full fat tools and a “great touch experience.”

Users will find Word, Excel and PowerPoint ready for their fingerprints right on their Apple tab. Collaborative work is possible thanks to the suite as multiple users can tinker with a doc or presentation.

Microsoft said Office for iPad follows a “freemium” business model, but Office 365 subscribers will have full capability to the application once it goes live.
