2012 - Google acquired the best mobile office - Quickoffice to keep up competition with Feng Office
It seams that start-ups become cheaper in spring. Every day IT giants are buying someone. During two days Google has bought two companies - Meebo and Quickoffice. The acquisition of social messenger Meebo aims to strengthen the social network Google+. And the acquisition of Quickoffice is much more interesting to us. Quickoffice is known as the best suite of mobile document editors. Quickoffice provides native applications (that can work offline) for iPhone, iPad, Android and even for Symbian and webOS that can perfectly open and edit Microsoft Office documents (Word, Excel and PowerPoint). In addition, Quickoffice can synchronize documents between different platforms, but this feature is likely to be replaced by the Google Drive. Thus, Google Docs is becoming the dominant office suite not only in the cloud, but also on mobile devices.
As for the main competitor (Microsoft), the MS Office Mobile so far works only on Windows Phone and Symbian. The version of MS Office for the iPad is under the development and is scheduled for November. Version for Android - may be will never be created. Given that the iPhone + iPad + Android dominate the mobile world, then it's evident that Microsoft is now far behind Google.
