According to a recent report, Microsoft is working on a version of Microsoft Office for Apple’s iPad, in an attempt to take on Apple’s own Numbers, Pages and Keynote apps, and each app is expected to retail for around $10.

A focus on tablet content creation is something Microsoft and its partners seem to be slowly waking up to. CEO Steve Ballmer confirmed the company’s engineers were looking at how Office could be reworked in the Metro style of  Windows 8 during Build 2011 earlier in the year, while NVIDIA’s president argued that an Office build for ARM-based Windows 8 tablets and notebooks would be “the killer app” for the platform.

It would make sense for Microsoft to release office applications for the iPad, considering it is still the most popular tablet at the moment.

Nokia’s certainly made it tough to be a resident of the U.S. that’s dying to give one of their Windows Phones a spin, as the company has unveiled both the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 for release overseas but has been pretty quiet on any sort of launch info for us in the States. If a new rumor about a U.S.-bound Nokia Windows phone is true, though, the wait may just be worth it.

According to a source speaking to BGR, Nokia is prepping a flagship device named the Lumia 900 for a stateside launch early next year. The Lumia 900 is said to feature “the same basic identity as the Lumia 800” and will reportedly include a 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display, 1.4GHz processor and an 8-megapixel camera. The source added that the 900 may be running Windows Phone Tango, which is believed to be the version of Microsoft’s OS that’s part of the transition between Mango and Windows Phone Apollo.

According to a recent report from the BGR, the Nokia Lumia 900 will share many of the specifications of the recently launched Lumia 800, but this new device will feature a larger display.

The Nokia  Lumia 900 is expected to feature a 4.3 inch ClearBlack AMOLED display, and a single core 1.4GHz processor plus an 8 megapixel camera, and it may come with the new version of Microsoft’s mobile OS, Windows Phone Tango, we could possibly see it at CES 2012 in January.

Its look like Nokia now are developing more versions and new phones in the market!

Today Facebook has rolled out their new Facebook Messenger desktop client to a limited number of test users. It has been designed specifically for Windows 7, and once officially launched to the masses will provide you with access to your ticker feed, notifications and allow you to chat your friends.

The new Facebook Messenger desktop client has been developed to enable Facebook users to remain logged in and up to date with events within their feed, without the need to keep a browser window continuously open.

If trials of the new Windows 7 Facebook Messenger client go well, Facebook is expected to rollout Messenger clients for other operating systems.
