Android and iOS users will now be able to get access to Microsoft Office products on their respective devices, if these new leaked screenshots prove to be true. The images have been confirmed by several sources as being legitimate and Microsoft has reportedly said that they plan to launch the apps in March 2013.

To use the new apps on the mobile platforms, users will be required to have an Office 365 subscription, enabling Microsoft to continue making money off of a key revenue generator. Users with a Microsoft account, but lacking the subscription to Office 365, will be able to view documents from Excel, PowerPoint, and Word, but will be unable to edit.

 

The rumor surfaced last year when a picture seemed to show an iPad running an Office app. Microsoft was quick to squash the rumor, though in May, rumors again surfaced that Office would be coming to the popular mobile operating systems in November. November is here and we still don't have the apps, but TechSpot reports that they will be out in March 2013.
