Should Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) create a specific version of Office for Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad? Several outlets have been reporting that Mr. Softy is planning exactly this sort of move.

Odds are they're wrong, says Tim Beyers of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Motley Fool Supernova. In the following video, he points out that, while it's true Apple and Microsoft are cooperating more, there's little incentive for Mr. Softy to pay its rival a 30% cut of Office sales via a full-fledged app.

Rather, as ZDNet's Ed Bott points out here, Microsoft is more likely to offer a free version of the various Office apps to iOS users and then turn on certain functions on the back end according to subscription level.
