Very few of Androids all Office suits for Android is free.
If you want premium functions.

The reason why MS is launching Android and IOS Office suits is because Winphone have failed, totally.

As most computer MS Office user are professionals and they do not have WP8 phones, they got Android and/or IOS phones and tablets.

Also those half a dozen or more Office suit makers for Android is a terrible threat for MS Office in the future. Microsoft do not like competition on, because they allways loose, like in the Phone OS race...

Office on WP8 and Windows RT tablets are free. On Android phones, you have to pay yearly subscription fee to use it. WP8 has consistent UI, free Office, Exchange, Lync, SharePoint, Skydrive integrations etc.. are great for corporate use. More and more corporations are switching to WP8 in the past couple of months. It's much easier for IT groups to manage an OS with consistent UI and very stable like WP8.

Knock out move for Nokia. MS has taken the best part about WInodws phone to Andriod/ios and left behind a still rudimentary OS for Windows phones. Wonder why would someone buy a Winodws phone now

I am just waiting for the next generation of haswell chipsets on surface pro 2, and next generation Win 8 on mobile phones - then we finally have a proper business platform and not a pretend platform as is Android and Apple for business. Finally!
