And three weeks ago, Microsoft shipped a preview of its Outlook Web App (OWA) for Android, fulfilling a promise made in March.
Whatever Microsoft eventually launches for Android and Windows 8 will most certainly come with the same freemium strings as Office for iPad, which can be used free of charge for viewing Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents, but demands an Office 365 subscription to create new documents or edit existing ones.
For consumers, the Office 365 Home and Office 365 Personal plans cost $100 and $70 a year, respectively. Businesses have a variety of programs to choose from that start at $150 per user per year and climb to $264 per user per year.
