Well, it looks like Microsoft is finally inching closer towards releasing Microsoft Office for Android tablets, and I'm sure quite a lot of you with Note Pro 12.2" tablets would be interested to try it out.
(sorry, can't post links yet, but just google for 'office android tablet', there is a lot of information released on news sites in the last 24 hours.)

Unfortunately, the preview sign-up says they are only supporting tablets 7" - 10.1"
I tried signing up for a preview and chose 10.1" but when it asked for the tablet model I chose other and typed in "Samsung Galaxy Note Pro"... I guess I might get rejected

Can anyone share their experiences if they've been able to get the preview running on the Note Pro?

I grabbed the apk off my phone and dropped on my P900; it's working great but only in portrait mode. I tried to force it into landscape mode ( I'm on CM11 ) and it completely crashed the tablet, so ... If you want to try it, grab "MyAppSharer" to isolate the apk file for exporting.

I've tried several ways, no luck so far. It's driving me nuts as the Note 10.1 2014 works with it and our resolutions are identical.

Try this link: Install MS Word, Excel, Powerpoint.

Worked for me on my Note 12.2 (P901). Works in landscape mode, too.

Worked awesome. Very nice for a beta. Perfect for the 12.2.

Thumbs up
Here's the link to the newest Office for MS Android APK installable on Note 12. It's available free so it's not warez. Some tinkering to get in in Landscape may be required. Enjoy.

Not sure you will get the automatic updates to office if downloaded from that site.
