Google Acquires Quick Office   Android Integration imminent?Google have today announced the acquisition of Quickoffice, the office productivity company.

Google say:


We’re happy to announce that we have acquired Quickoffice, a leader in office productivity solutions.

Today, consumers, businesses and schools use Google Apps to get stuff done from anywhere, with anyone and on any device. Quickoffice has an established track record of enabling seamless interoperability with popular file formats, and we’ll be working on bringing their powerful technology to our Apps product suite.

Quickoffice has a strong base of users, and we look forward to supporting them while we work on an even more seamless, intuitive and integrated experience.

We’re excited to welcome the Quickoffice team and their users to Google.

This move could signal the intention of  a full integration of Quick office into Android and Google Drive in order to create a complete on-the-go office suite.

Do you rely on Google Docs? Does the potential integration of Quick Office make sense?  Join the discussion over on our forums.

    surely this is about talent grabbing to work on google docs. Seems odd otherwise as there’s loads of overlap with Google Docs. Personally, gutted I hold a licence for Documents to Go – picked the wrong one, albeit 2 years ago.
