Microsoft (MSFT) isn’t just working on refreshing Windows 8 for later this year — it’s also apparently working on a refresh for Office as well. ZDNet reports that an updated version of Office, currently codenamed Gemini, is slated for release this fall and will include updates for Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. ZDNet also reports that “Office is refocusing itself from being an organization that builds and sells Windows apps, to one that builds apps and services that run on multiple, heterogeneous platforms,” so it seems that the next version of Office could be the one that finally runs on iOS and Android.
