The rumors about Microsoft (MSFT) developing an Office Mobile application for the iPhone and the iPad are starting to bear fruit. Via MacRumors, French blog Mac4Ever has posted some leaked documents from Microsoft’s French support site that include references to “Excel for iPad,” “PowerPoint for iPad,” and “Office Mobile for iPhone.” The Verge reported last month that Microsoft was working on an Office Mobile application for both iOS and Android that would launch in early 2013. There’s some added urgency for Microsoft to make its Office suite available on more mobile platforms since Google (GOOG) has recently started moving into its enterprise territory with its Google Apps productivity software.
