iOS and Android versions of Office 2013 should be released in March, according to a Microsoft product manager. Petr Bobek made the comment at a press event in the Czech Republic earlier today. The Verge, meanwhile, says it has seen a press release from Microsoft's Czech team that confirms plans for "Windows Phone, Windows RT, Mac OS, Android, iOS and Symbian," on top of the flagship Windows edition. There should also be an Office Web Apps update.

An iPad version of Office has been rumored for some time, but until now Microsoft has either kept quiet on the topic or challenged the legitimacy of screenshots. There is no native support for Office files in iOS, and in the absence of Microsoft, third-party apps such as CloudOn and QuickOffice have stepped in. The Czech press release also states that Office 2013 for Windows will reach businesses in December, and the general public in February. "Office 365 services and other Office products for mobile (phones and tablets) will be released from March 2013," the document goes on. A spokesperson for Microsoft US, however, claims that the company hasn't announced any retail availability. "We have said previously Office Mobile will work across Windows Phones, Android phones and iOS," the representative adds.
