Google Docs Editing Headed to the iPad

Today, Google announced that the iPad will soon be able to edit documents straight from the tablet’s browser. Previously, users could only view their cloud-stored files, and not make changes. This new feature will be a great alternative for people who don’t want to plop down $9.99 for Pages, and considering all your Google Documents are available from any computer without the need to sync, it may be much more useful.

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.

Only cloud computing is able to deliver the whole package of productivity-enhancing collaboration, superior reliability and virtually unlimited scale at a price that’s affordable for any size organization. Our Atmosphere event is a nice opportunity to step back and fully appreciate the power of the cloud with customers and future customers alike.
