The new Intel-native version of Microsoft Office for Mac has been delayed, the company says, because “delivering Office at the right quality level is super important to the entire team and to Microsoft’s long standing commitment to the Mac platform”. According to a post on the company’s Mac Mojo blog, Microsoft’s Mac Business Unit determined that it would be unable to ship the product before the end of this year.

Instead, the company now plans to ship the code to manufacturing by December, making it available to US customers in January and the rest of us by “the first quarter of 2008”. Sneak previews of more new Office features are expected to be doled out over the intervening months.
