The head of MS Office, Kurt DelBene ducking when he asked for MS Office for Apple’s iOS.

Microsoft’s head of Office, Kurt DelBene, huddled around it, and gave the typical politician response when he was asked Tuesday at a Conference on MS Office for Apple’s iOS.

Kurt DelBene was at Morgan Stanley’s technology investment conference in San Francisco, where he was asked directly to Microsoft’s plans for MS Office for Apple’s iOS, writes our site.

“We’ve actually done a lot of work on iOS devices this time around,” said Kurt DelBene.

“We have enhanced the web applications pretty substantially, in partnership with Apple.”

There are over 100 million iPad users, many of whom probably would have MS Office on their device.

An analyst from Morgan Stanley has earlier this month estimating that Microsoft could generate 2.5 billion dollars (14.2 billion dollars) a year, by offering MS Office for iOS.

Microsoft is probably hesitant because it could eliminate the customers incentive to buy Microsoft’s own tablet Surface.
