Microsoft Office is tragically late in arriving for the most popular platform in post-PC computing — the iPad. But, in hopes that better-late-for-never works better for Microsoft this time than it has in the past, it looks like they might finally be ready to let the Apple tablet-optimized version of their productivity suite loose.

Of course he’s counting all Macs and iOS devices as computers, just as he’s counting all Microsoft Windows PCs and Windows Mobile phones as computers. But the numbers don’t lie. In the last quarter Apple's traditional + mobile business is responsible for shipping just as many units as Microsoft. And obviously Apple is growing much faster.
