Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) continues to make announcements that excite current users and consumers alike.
Yesterday, the company put out a post entitled “The Office you love is now on your Android tablet.”
This is as big deal for Microsoft on many fronts, including the fact that Android tablet users, which there are millions of, can now take full advantage of the Office experience.
Microsoft knew this was coming sooner rather than later, but give the company credit for not jumping the gun. This is sure to be a hit, as it will give Android tablet users access to Word, Excel and PowerPoint. In addition to individual consumers, you can expect this to work in the favor of business professionals on the go.
Here is more from the Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) post, explaining just how many people this will help:
“Consider a pharmaceutical sales rep on a train in Chicago, updating her monthly budgets in Excel. Or a student in a Madrid coffee shop writing a paper in Word, while collaborating with other students back at the dorm. Or a consultant from Bangalore at his client’s site, wirelessly projecting a PowerPoint presentation to a large screen.”
What can it do for me?
On the surface, it is easy to believe that this update from Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is not that big of a deal. However, you have to get your hands on the product for a better idea of what it brings to the party.
Check out this video of the Office on Android apps in action. Once you check this out, you may find yourself more excited than ever before about using your current Android tablet or buying a new one.
Before you do anything, however, make sure you become familiar with the system requirements, which include: seven inch or larger screen size, 1 GB RAM or more, and an ARM based processor.
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is on the run and there is no reason to believe the company is slowing down anytime soon. When it comes to mobile developments, it truly feels like MSFT is moving just as fast as its competition. And that is a good thing for users, consumers, and investors.
