They are falling but I strongly suspect that most of the tablets purchased are still in action.
You don't need new tablet sales to sell Office, you just need extant devices.
Personally, I got Office free already with my tablet, touch-centric might be nice for viewing but really, editing is better with the keyboard mouse.
I assume I will eventually get the touchy build for the Surface RT but it is rightly not that important.
