There are, however, a number of apps that are compatible with Office documents. Apple makes iOS versions of their own iWork apps (Pages, Keynote, Numbers) that can be purchased separately. There are also 3rd party combined suites that cost less than the separate Apple apps. Ones often recommended include Documents 2 Go, Quickoffice and Office2 HD.

Back to your original question, I have heard/read numerous rumors about the possiblity of a Microsoft Office iPad app @ some point in the near future. Apparently, Microsoft has "officially" denied this... but there are several clues which say otherwise.
Here is one of the more interesting articles about it:
Hope for the best!

I think what you will see first is a touch enabled version of MS Office for the Windows 8 tablets coming out this fall.

I agree. Highly likely.
