Re: Office for any tablet is dumb
Well, I'm not going to make assumptions about what people can or can not afford over a period of time, but I take your point, and it's certainly good value compared to the regular editions I was referring to with my pricing comment.
Remember, this came from the "mistake" of not offering Office for iPad. Who knows with the tie in to the App Store whether the iPad can support being part of the Office365 subscription, or whether Microsoft would choose to do so. Either way, if it's available and it's cheap - through whatever mechanism - it will be a good thing to be able to use.
Although perhaps while we're on mistakes, the marketing of Office365 continues to be appalling. And still selling things like the Office Home & Student edition would not appear to make an awful lot of sense next to Office365, so the message from Microsoft is a very confused one at best.
