It certainly seems as if Microsoft is finding gold in them thar Android Hills. And their desire to get a version of MS Office on devices other than Windows computers and smartphones is also a very smart move, in my humble opinion. Microsoft's foray into the smartphone world with their acquisition of Nokia and porting of Windows has not garnered much interest - at least according to their paltry market share. Even poor RIM Blackberry is doing better with penetration.
