Microsoft may be planning to bring its revered Office productivity suite to a bunch of new devices in the near future, but hitherto, a service by the name of CloudOn has allowed consumers to use the software on their mobile devices.

The release of the Apple iPad in April 2010 brought about a major change in the way consumers went about their computing business. We started off with personal computers, laptops and netbooks.

All of these came with distinct advantages, but none of them quite fulfilled the need of people who wanted to do a bit of everything on the go.
