    This news slipped through the cracks a bit because there was more pressing news to cover, but even though it is a couple days old, we thought it worth mentioning. Apparently, there is a rumor that Microsoft will start offering their Microsoft Office Suite on Android and iOS sometime the year. Supposedly, Microsoft is planning for a November launch of the mobile version of their Office product.

    The sources of this story indicated that they have actually seen the product running on tablets, although Microsoft has categorically denied that the app exists. This report seems to back up previous rumors that Microsoft may be planning this move. Who knows why they would deny it, other than they want to make their future marketing campaign more cost effective. We will keep you informed if we find out more.

    I sure hope this rumor is true. I'd also like to see a fully functional XBOX app as well.
