The Daily reports that Microsoft is ready to release an iOS native Microsoft Office app in the coming weeks.

A brief hands-on with a working prototype of the software revealed a number of new things. The app’s user interface is similar to the current OneNote app, but it has hints of Metro, the new design language that can be seen in Windows Phone and in the as-yet-released Windows 8 desktop operating system.

This will be an interesting test of Office’s relevance in today’s market.  Its absence from the iPad hasn’t exactly held sales back in either the consumer or business markets, and other companies (including Apple) have had a two year head start to come up with alternative products.
