Android and iOS to get Microsoft Office 2013 apps next year [updated]

Android and iOS to get Microsoft Office 2013 apps next year [updated]:
Microsoft Office 2013 Android iOS Release Date
Back in May, BGR exclusively reported that Microsoft (MSFT) was planning to release Office 2013 for Android and iOS later this year. It looks like Microsoft’s suite of work apps won’t hit Google (GOOG) and Apple’s (AAPL) mobile platforms until some time after March 2013, however, according to IHNED’s recounting of a statement by Microsoft’s Czech Republic product manager Petr Bobek.
Updated to clarify that Office for iOS and Android will reportedly launch some time after March.
The Verge says a press release from Microsoft Czech Republic states: ”In addition to Windows, Office will be also available on other operating systems, Windows Phone, Windows RT, Mac OS, Android, iOS and Symbian.”
A new version of Office Web Apps and Office 365 will also be available around March 2013. A U.S.-based Microsoft spokesman did not confirm or deny Bobek’s possible slip up.
The Daily published an image of Office running on the iPad earlier this year which Microsoft claimed was not authentic. Microsoft appears to have had a change of heart, however. Going multi-platform with Office would allow it to have an almost universal presence on any device — a smart move when it’s trying to catch up to Apple and Google as a mobile power player.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

Microsoft acquires iPhone email app Acompli

After accidentally announcing it a little early, Microsoft is officially confirming it has acquired email startup Acompli. The surprise acquisition means Microsoft is picking up a powerful email client for iPhone and Android in another move that further cements CEO Satya Nadella’s focus on cross-platform technologies. The Verge’s Casey Newton called Acompl "the Outlook for iPhone that Microsoft hasn’t yet built," and it seems Microsoft was equally impressed with the powerhouse email app. "We’re excited about what’s possible as we build on the app’s success and bring it together with work currently in progress by the Outlook team," the company said in a statement. "Our goal is to deliver fantastic cross-platform apps that support the variety of email services people use today and help them accomplish more." Recode first reportedthat Microsoft would make its latest acquisition official today; the company is said to be paying over $200 million for Acompli.
