Microsoft said on Friday that it is planning to announce some news from its Office Division next Tuesday.
The announcement will be made at 8am PDT on Tuesday October 19. Kurt DelBene, president, Microsoft Office Division, and Chris Capossela, senior vice president, Information Worker Product Management Group, will present the news, along with Microsoft customers and partners. Microsoft sent out a media alert to members of the press on Friday to reveal the announcement.
It"s unclear what Microsoft is planning to announce or unveil next week. Microsoft is planning to release Office for Mac 2011 on October 26 so it"s unlikely to be related to this product. The software giant may be planning to introduce an office suite for iPhone and iPad users. Neowin has heard rumours of such a product previously and with Apple loosening its App Store rules recently, this could pave the path for such an app. We would also expect the app would support document synchronization to Windows Live SkyDrive. Stay tuned for coverage of the announcement next Tuesday.
