The Battle for Your Office: Google vs Microsoft

Google Is Prepping A Sneak Attack On Microsoft Office (via ReadWrite)

I’ve used Google Apps for the majority of my work over the last year and it does provide enough basic features for most users. It excels at sharing and at collaboration for multiple users on the same document eliminating the need to compare and merge docs that have been emailed around a workgroup. However Google Apps and Google Drive are a poor experience on mobile devices, made only slightly better by QuickOffice.

This article makes an interesting point. So far QuickOffice on Android has been ok but not a complete Office replacement. If you blend QuickOffice and Google Apps in a powerful way, that could become a compelling response to Microsoft Office and Skydrive.
