Google online PowerPoint challenge coming soon?

Posted by David Hunter at 12:27 PM ET.

The Inquirer reports some buzz that Google is privately showing off a presentation package called Presently which is similar to Microsoft Office’s PowerPoint, but online of course. That such an offering was in the works to round out Google Docs and Spreadsheets (and Google Apps) has been no surprise since Google acquired software developers Zenter and Tonic Systems earlier this year. I’m sure it won’t be billed by Google as a PowerPoint killer, but like all the Google Docs applications the emphasis will be on sharing and ubiquity of use. Still, it is just one more reason for Microsoft to be nervous.
