Microsoft Office has arrived on the iPhone

What there was not anything of rumors about Microsoft Office for the iOS platform. While it was there mostly to the iPad, but the move from iPhone to iPad is now not that far, so it is likely to only be a matter of time until the Apple – Tablet blessed with their own version of Office 365 will.
