Releasing Microsoft Office on the iPad would be a disaster

I just wrote an article on Seeking Alpha that I think you might want to read.

It basically talks about why it would be a bad idea disaster for Microsoft to release a full version of Office for the iPad.

It’s called “If Microsoft Brings Office To The iPad, Sell Immediately

Here’s an excerpt:

In a recent article on CNN.com, Morgan Stanley’s Adam Holt estimates Microsoft (MSFT) may be leaving money on the table by not offering a full version of its Office suite on Apple’s (AAPL) iPads.

In the piece, he goes on to estimate that this decision is costing Microsoft two and a half billion dollars.

He may be right but it’s absolutely irrelevant.

What’s strange about the analysis is how incredibly one-sided it is and how it doesn’t talk about some of the potential downsides of such a decision.

Well that’s what I will do now.

First some context about Microsoft Office.

It’s a pretty good read (if I say so myself).

Check it out here.
