You’re frustrated with your iPad due to the fact there is no version of Office available for it, and the darn thing doesn’t have a physical keyboard! What’s that? You’re OK on both counts? Well, somebody might want to give Bill Gates a clue then.
Serving as the lone hero for Microsoft’s compromise PC-tablet (the Surface Pro even has a fan, you know, like a PC), the Microsoft co-founder cited users’ growing frustration with the software and hardware limitations of the iPad as we move further into the post-PC reality.
So, Bill seems to be ignoring the fact that at last count there were eleventy-billion (that is the exact number) keyboards, and keyboard cases available for the iPad, and he also seems to be ignorant of certain apps for the iPad, such as Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, among others, that do an excellent job of standing in for Office on the iPad.
Microsoft has long been rumored to be readying a version of Office for iOS, the latest whispered info says look for Office for iOS in October of this year, but hide nor hair has yet to be found of an iOS version of the office suite, and do we really miss it?
