Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) Reveals Office Mobile in Spring

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has been rumored to be working on developing its Office Suite software for mobile devices for nearly all of 2012, but very little was actually confirmed that such a thing existed. The ability to use Word, PowerPoint and Excel on a smartphone or tablet could easily have been seen as a very natural innovation, what with so many people no loner being tethered to their desktops, yet needing access to important presentations or memos while they are out of the office.

Now, according to some sources, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is about ready to take its Microsoft Office Suite Mobile live sometime in the early part of 2013. The new app is due to be rolled out for the Android operating system by Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and for the iOS by Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL), and would be available via a free mobile app that would require a Microsoft account.  The user would have full viewing capability with the app, but would need an Office 365 subscription in order to enable editing functions. The app would also allow basic editing but will not replace a standard full desktop version. It is reported that iOS users would be able to purchase Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Office 365 directly from the app, and allow network (enterprises) to access codes for Office 365 across all devices in the network.

The next big challenge for tech companies, besides having success with moile advertising, is coming up with effective enterprise apps on mobile devices, since many people have offices in their cars, on planes, hotel rooms or otherwise away from their desktops. To see Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) apparently getting a grasp on its market-leading Office Suite and being able to run it on mobile devices is likely to open up some new opportunities and possibilities for some mobile revenue and overall end-user market share, which would be key as the company attempts to get a foothold in the smartphone and tablet space with its Windows Phone 8 operating system. Would this new app ultimately help Microsoft and would it make the stock more attractive for investors like billionaire Seth Klarman of Baupost Group? How do you see Microsoft  as a company? Is it still legitimate in relation to Apple Inc (AAPL) or Google Inc (GOOG), and does Office Mobile help?
