Microsoft will now be rectifying the first problem by unveiling the iPad version of the ‘Office Mobile for Office 365 subscribers’ on March 27 at an event in San Francisco. The event will be hosted by Microsoft’s new CEO, Satya Nadella, and will be his first since taking up the position. Read more »
