Google have announced that Google Docs editing is coming to the iPad in the next few weeks. The news comes via their Google Blog in a post about their Google Atmosphere Event in Paris France:

  • We’re launching new cloud-powered capabilities: two-step verification to help enhance security and soon, mobile editing in Google Docs on Android and the iPad™

Second, today we demonstrated new mobile editing capabilities for Google Docs on the Android platform and the iPad. In the next few weeks, co-workers around the world will soon be able to co-edit files simultaneously from an even wider array of devices.

Currently you can view Google Docs on the iPad but not edit, so this is great news especially after RIM recently purchased into DataViz which make Documents to Go, one of the best Office Suites available for the iPad, and now may be planning to be Blackberry exclusive. Makes me wish that I had got the 3G iPad now, oh well I am sure Apple will be planning a new model early next year, an upgrade is already on the horizon.
