Microsoft Office will be available on the iPad

Microsoft Office is coming to the iPad and will be available on Apple's Lion operating system next year. Office is integrated into the Windows Phone already and I am sure that they would like a piece of real estate on the iPad. The iPad isn't really suited for creating content so I wouldn't think about producing the next War and Peace on it, but it would be good for simple thoughts in Word or Excel. I would think that you should also be able to sync into Office 365 so you can pickup those thoughts on a laptop or desktop when you get to the office. I would also think that the office apps would be very scaled down versions of the full apps.
