Office for iPad story denied by Microsoft

The company denied working on such a project and said the story was based on rumors.

The Daily recently unveiled a photo of the Office suite running on the tablet, claiming it would soon be submitted to Apple for approval.

The source quoted by the newspaper added that an Android version is not on the agenda and that OneNote for iOS will be entitled to a new version to use the Metro interface elements.

However, a Microsoft spokesperson told The New York Times that “The Daily story is based on inaccurate rumors and speculation,” adding that it has “no further comment” at this time.

In addition, the company made an official announcement last night, via Twitter, that reads: “Great respect for The Daily but regrettably someone is giving them bad info, and that’ll be clear in the ‘coming weeks.'”

What do you think? Should we expect to see Microsoft’s Office on the iPad?
