Re: where are those facts again?
The problem is that until there is a product released, we really don't know what to expect.  Microsoft will make the biggest buck through licensing, so it makes sense to look at a 365 model, as opposed to having it as a pure application.  

As for it cutting into Microsoft tablet/convertable share, I think it's still yet to be seen if the iPad, even with Office, can make it a true work device instead of a consumption device.

where are those facts again?
Every one of your "facts" has weasel words like 'could' in it, or is a question. How is "What about Android" a Fact that you Know about Office for iPad? You don't know anything at all.

At least get one of your coworkers to read the Foley article to you so that you can say "our sources tell us that" blah blah blah.
