For me, One thing’s for sure, i can’t “live” without MS Office… It looks like the launch date for Microsoft’s next-generation Office 2013 is January 29th, a Canadian retailer’s pre-order page hinted. Anyone plan on making Microsoft Office 2013 purchase?
The newest version of Office — known both as “the new Office” and “Office 2013” — will be commercially available on that date. Microsoft announced office suite of application, Office 2013, or as they call it, the new Office, back in July, and a Preview version was made available for download.
“The new, modern Office will deliver unparalleled productivity and flexibility for both consumers and business customers,” said Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. “It is a cloud service and will fully light up when paired with Windows 8.”
Three Office 365 subscription packages will be available, starting at $99 a year on subscription or $139.99 one-time standalone purchase.
