Ballmer: Office for iPad to follow a touch-friendly Windows version

Once a touch-friendly version of Office for Windows(s msft) appears — a project that’s in the works — look for Office to land on Apple’s(s aapl) iPad, Steve Ballmer said on Tuesday. That would take the place of the current iPhone-specific version and Office on the web. It’s a shame Microsoft didn’t push this project quicker; it likely left tens of millions of dollars on the table by not supporting Apple’s tablet sooner.
