Microsoft Launches Office For Some Android Phone

Right, well that was pretty quick. Microsoft gave us a taste of how its Office applications would look on Android phones in a preview just last month, and now they are prepared for public consumption. Word, Powerpoint and Excel are out there for your delectation — at no cost, no less — within the Google Play Store right now, just with 1 big caveat. Those pesky prior limitations are still in impact here, so do not expect to run these things on a phone with out at least 1GB of RAM and something older than Android 4.4.

That, sadly, leaves a good chunk of Android users out within the cold. Acco. to Google’s own developer dashboard, only a bit more than half of Android’s current userbase meet the software necessities for editing spiffy trying spreadsheets on the fly, and that is not even factoring within the (honestly minimal) RAM limitation at play right here. Bear in mind: KitKat was designed to run well even on devices with as little as 512 MB RAM. Everyone else will’ve to cling to Google Docs, for better or worse. If you have mucked around with Office for Android tablets previously, you would not find too many surprises here: all the bright colours and touch sensitive menus are back, and you will be able to share your creations through Dropbox, OneDrive and as plain ol attachments. Not a bad way to appease your productivity addiction, no?
