Microsoft's Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps have been in preview on Android for a few months, first as an invite-only preview then as an open one. Now Redmond appears to be moving forward with the real deal—the preview label is gone, and the final versions are rolling out.

Microsoft started a closed beta for Office on Android tablets back in November, but today it's opening things up. Just mosey over to the Play Store, and you can download Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for free, no beta invite required. These are still preview apps, but they seem ready for prime time.

There's a pretty basic version of Microsoft Office available for Android in the Play Store, but you won't have much luck trying to install that on anything much larger than a Galaxy Note or Nexus 6. For tablets, the company has something different in the works, and it's now ready to give out tastes to Android users who are eager enough to sign up and get in line.

This comes as Microsoft is touting the ability to use Office on every device.

Just like the Docs app, Google's Sheets client has been updated today with an Android L fix and plenty of new features that make QuickOffice obsolete. The improvements are very similar to Docs, but it mimics Excel instead of Word.

OfficeSuite-Thumb

There are no shortage of office suites available for Android, but two of the most popular have been Quickoffice and OfficeSuite. The former took a hiatus after Google purchased it last year, and while the new version isn't bad per se, it's not what to used to be. In the meantime, OfficeSuite has continued to improve, and version 7.3 introduces a slew of new features that add an extra layer of polish to what is already a solid app.

Since Google acquired Quickoffice last year, the internet has been quietly hoping that the investment will result in a much improved document editing experience on Android. So far, there hasn't been a monumental shift, but now the company is releasing Quickoffice for Google Apps For Business. For real.

The suite is only available for users of Google Apps For Business, obviously, but if your company is in that group, then enjoy your new, free applications.

Newsflash, Android users: the Google Drive/Docs app is terrible. It's just about competent enough to read the documents you've written elsewhere, but for editing and creating new Word, Excel, and PDF documents, you need something with a little more oomph. One of the best choices out there is OfficeSuite, and it's also one of the most expensive, at $15. But right now you can - and should - pick it up for a single dollar.

It seems the rumors can't stop flowing out of Redmond. Last month, a representative from a Microsoft subsidiary in Czech Republic claimed that Office would be coming to Android in 2013. While the company distanced itself from those remarks pretty quickly, that may simply be a smokescreen to cover leaks, like the kind the Verge picked up, including a few screenshots of Office running on iOS, and information on the release for our little green buddy.

Sure, you can use Google Docs on your phone or tablet for free, but what if you crave something a little more robust than Google's web-based offering? You would usually have to drop some serious cash on a full office suite in the Play Store, but today you can get a great deal on OfficeSuite Pro 5 which is on sale for just $2.99 through April 4th, a huge discount over its normal $15 price.

OnLive, the company that has already revolutionized gaming is now gunning for making the same kind of splash in OS virtualization. And not just any OS virtualization, but Windows 7 in the cloud, for free - a set of words I never thought I'd write in the same sentence.

Something worth pointing out right off the bat is OnLive's "groundbreaking video compression technology" that is used to stream the Desktop cloud to your tablet.
