Is Microsoft working on Office for iPad and Mac App Store?

According to several sources Microsoft is “actively working” on bringing its Microsoft Office suite to the iPad,looking to take on Apple’s iWork applications for the popular tablet device. The report also says that Microsoft is working on a updated Office for Mac suite, with the new version said to be targeted for a Mac App Store release sometime next year.

Microsoft acknowledged just after the iPad’s introduction in early 2010 that the company was “looking at” the possibility of bringing Office to the iPad, but by the time the device actually launched a few months later the company was saying that it had “no current plans” for such an offering.
