Microsoft Office goes mobile on Andorid phones

Microsoft has today included Android to the list of mobile operating systems now supported by Office Mobile. Seems Microsoft has decided to at least give in and release their treasured Office application on another platform.  But for now Office Mobile is for Android phones only, and doesn’t cover tablets, limiting its utility.

The Android version, Office Mobile for Android, is also arguably the weakest of the bunch, in terms of compatibility with Microsoft Office. Microsoft is still tacitly encouraging users to buy Windows Phones, which come preloaded and activated with Windows Mobile and don’t require an Office 365 subscription to use. The problem is, within the Android world, there are a number of other office solutions that provide very good direct competition to Microsoft’s offering.
