Microsoft Office has been flirting with Android for awhile now, but things may be getting a lot more serious now that MS Product Manager Petr Bobek said that the full productivity suite may be landing in March 2013 on mobile. The full desktop version of Office 2013 should be available for businesses in December 2013 and consumers in late February.
If you're really interested in checking it out, a customer preview was made available over the summer. Which mobile apps do you use to handle presentbations, documents, and spreadsheets? Are they good enough, or does Microsoft need to make something that ties in really tightly with the desktop counterparts? I could certainly see some solid Microsoft Office apps getting some use on tablets with keyboard docks, but do people do a lot of serious editing on smartphones?
Update: Microsoft corporate PR is saying that the information is bogus. Take that as you will.
