Microsoft will reveal Office for iPad on March 27th. That’s the word from inside sources at the tech giant, speaking anonymously with the chaps at The Verge.

The long–awaited app will be revealed by Microsoft’s new CEO Satya Nadella at a special event in San Francisco. The launch will tie into his new ‘mobile first, cloud first’ strategy.

Few specific details are known about Office for iPad. However, it’s believed to look similar to last year’s Office for iPhone and will require an Office 365 subscription in order to create and edit documents, spreadsheets and presentations.

Subscriptions can be paid for monthly and come bundled with new copies of Office for PC and Mac.

Office for iPad has been rumoured ever since Steve Jobs launched the first iPad in 2010. This move should help Microsoft shore up its productivity suite, while doubtless boosting sales of Apple’s slate.

Full pricing and launch information will be revealed by Microsoft at next week’s event in California.
