Will Office for iOS launch coincide with new iPad?

Gigaom

The Verge has a press release from Microsoft’s Czech Republic group that confirms the company is planning to launch a native version of Office for a variety of mobile platforms next year, including iOS, Android(s GOOG), Windows Phone(s MSFT) and Symbian. The timing is said to be March 2013, which could be just a coincidence or great strategy: a March ’13 launch would make the software available with or near the probable launch of Apple’s next 9.7-inch iPad.

The release date target came from a presentation in the Czech Republic on Wednesday by a Microsoft product manager. The platform details are from a press release read and translated by The Verge. According to the document, “In addition to Windows, Office will be also available on other operating systems, Windows Phone, Windows RT, Mac OS, Android, iOS and Symbian.” Web versions of the apps are also reportedly on their way.
