There won't be any experts. Samsung will use their picks to remove them when it's time to whittle the jury down to the final 10. They might again try and leave a "Hogan" in the jury so they can later try and get the verdict thrown out by pretending they didn't know something about them.
Don't let the tricky wording used by DroidFTW trick you. Office on Android is a severely limited version. There is no tablet-optimized, feature rich version of Office for Android.Here's a simple way to look at it. Office for Android is a 27MB download. That's for the entire package. Word for the iPad is a whopping 250MB. If you get all four Apps (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote) it's over 900MB.I wonder, do you actually think a 27MB App contains the same functionality...
 Mail and Drive offer more than iCloud for sure, but this article is about Office and similar packages, which means we're talking about the big 3 - word processing, spreadsheets and presentations.
Quote: Oh FFS. iWork now works in browsers. Apple demonstrated it running in both IE and Chrome on Windows PC's. So now iWork is available on any device with a browser. Just like Google Docs.
 I'm still waiting for your list of "superior" Android alternatives. iWork has been out for a long time, and is free with any new iDevice purchase, so it won't have a "spike" of downloads like you would with a newly released product (like Office). Google Docs only had one big advantage over iWork, which is collaboration. And between Apple's first showing of iWork running in a browser and the iPad Air announcement Apple added collaboration. Google Docs is not very...
 Please list these "superior" options. iOS had iWork, which is superior to anything Google has in Google Docs and also superior to anything on Android. So people aren't flocking to Office on iOS because of "poor alternatives".
 It's also quite a bit slower than the iPad (Air). And as a Windows machine, it's only average for performance and only suited to simpler tasks. And touch optimized Apps are scarce, making its use as a tablet, well, useless.
Microsoft also announced that Office Mobile (iPhone and Android phone) are now free.   Took out my iPhone to check the top Apps and Office Mobile was at #3. Went to Google Play and it's #36.   Guess we know which platform has users more interested with doing actual work. Seems like MS made the right choice.
 Can't believe I actually wasted time reading through that. Another to add to the block list.
 I posted on the Office forums about this, as the language on the iPad for the in-App purchase isn't quite as clear as I'd like. I just want to confirm it's exactly the same as on the website (5 users, 20GB each). I'll pop for the $99/year version. Having 5 users and 100GB of free storage to boot is a pretty good deal, IMO.
