Company PR team continues to reject rumors
After rejecting details in a recent leak surrounding Office for iPad, Microsoft suggests that the issue will be clarified soon. In a Twitter post from the official Microsoft News account, the company reiterates its stance that someone gave The Daily "bad info," but hints that evidence supporting its accusation will become "clear in the coming weeks."
The comments follow a statement from a spokeswoman who claimed that the leak was based on "inaccurate rumors and speculation," though the company has yet to absolutely deny that such an iPad app is being developed.
The leak alleges that Office for iPad is finally nearing completion, ready to bring Excel, PowerPoint and Word to Apple's tablet platform. The unnamed sources claim Microsoft is set to submit the app to Apple for approval, suggesting it may arrive within weeks.
