On the Lack of Office for iPad

John Gruber, commenting on Microsoft’s new Windows 8 ad campaign attacking the iPad:

It is a little rich, though, that they repeatedly use the absence of Microsoft apps on the iPad as knocks against the iPad. It’s Microsoft’s choice, not Apple’s, that there is no PowerPoint for iPad. Makes me wonder whether the Office team is being blocked from doing apps for iOS in order to protect Windows.

The second sentence nails it perfectly. Build it, and they will come.
