Google to challenge Microsoft Office applications

Is the Microsoft Office juggernaut unbeatable?  Google appears to be prepared to bet that it isn't.

Google has been offering their free Google Apps software for a while now, and for limited applications it is actually quite useful.  However, it has not been seen as a serious contender to Microsoft Office because of a lack of certain features that business users require, including technical support.

All that is about to change.  Google Apps will now be available in a Premier Edition , costing $50 per user per year, and offering "10 gigabytes of storage per users, APIs for business integration, 99.9 % uptime, 24x7 support for critical issues, and Gmail for mobile devices on BlackBerry", among other things.

Could this be bad news for Microsoft?
