ZDNet reports the productivity suite will outfit Google's OS ahead of Microsoft's own devices, the latter of which is now said to be pushed to early 2015. When speaking at the Code Conference last week, CEO Satya Nadella disclosed that touch-enabled Office apps hit the iPad first due to its massive lead in market share. That being said, with the bulk of mobile users on iOS and Android, it seems Microsoft is truly taking aim at bringing its popular software to as many users as possible, even if they aren't using its OSes on the daily.
