Office for iPad gets 12M downloads in first week - huge demand apparently

GeekWire:

It’s actually not a huge surprise, given the size of the Office installed base and the popularity of Apple’s tablet. From the start, it was clear that these apps were filling a need. They quickly shot up to the top of the App Store’s charts, and have stayed at the top in the week following their launch. They’re not slap-dash affairs, either: Microsoft created a set of apps that feel at home on the iPad, and it seems like the market is rewarding them for it.

Wow! Apparently it was a huge demand for Microsoft Office for iPad. I think it can be quite popular in the corporate business. Too bad you need a subscription to edit documents though…
