Microsoft Unlikely to Release Office for Apple iPad - John Paczkowski - News - AllThingsD

“Don’t hold your breath for Office on the iPad,” Sherlund wrote in a research note to clients today. “If there were a tug of war of conflicting interest with the Office team on one end of the rope and Steve Sinofsky and Steve Ballmer on the other, we would expect there would be no Office on iPad anytime soon.”

Looks like it’s time to resign ourselves to QuickOffice HD, OnLive Desktop and Apple’s iWork suite.
