While Enterprise admins are less than impressed with the new Office 365 model and the changes that are required to their environments to make this new product function correctly many SMBs, students and home users have a lot to be happy about. Device sharing is going to be a big thing, with one license allowing you to use Office 365 on a variety of the devices you own. Support on NVIDIA's Shield is still a rumour but compatibility with Android phones is much closer to reality. There are workarounds you need to put into place in order to make most Android phones function correctly, which The Register kindly linked to in their article and you will need to hunt down the originally released Microsoft installation file which they have pulled but you will be able to use Office 365. Hopefully you won't be trying to write long dissertations on your phone but reading and editing are quite possible.
"Unlike the video editing or CAD workstation beasts that are still utterly reliant on Windows, Android is slowly evolving into a workable platform for basic productivity."
