Truth About Office for iPad Will Arrive ‘In the Coming Weeks’

Yesterday I posted about reports coming from The Daily that Office for the iPad was very real, and was to be submitted to the iTunes App Store soon and then be available in a few weeks after, but Microsoft is saying otherwise.

A tweet from one of Microsoft’s Twitter accounts says, “[g]reat respect for The Daily but regrettably someone is giving them bad info, and that’ll be clear in the ‘coming weeks.’” So now we have The Daily saying it’s coming, Microsoft saying they have been misinformed and that the software in the image is not theirs, so I guess that’s that, right?

Well, not so fast. Shortly thereafter Mary Jo Foley, of the All About Microsoft Blog, received a tweet from Peter Ha (the one who posted the Office for iPad article on The Daily) saying that not only is the image not fabricated, but someone from Microsoft demoed Office for the iPad to him. Plus, according to a further tweet by Peter Ha, Microsoft isn’t going to be very happy with their next follow up, whatever that means.
