Microsoft Office 2013 to launch on January 29, 2013


Microsoft Office is arguably one of the most important products that has been produced by the software company. According to reports, Microsoft Office 2013 is set to launch on January 29, 2013, from Bryant Park, New York. The launch could be accompanied by key themes, which will be depicted by large orange words that spell ‘create’, ‘imagine’, ‘amaze’ and ‘explore’.

Microsoft Office 2010 was quite successful for the company, with most organizations shifting smoothly over to the upgraded software. Components of the software like Microsoft Office Word, Microsoft Office Excel and Microsoft Office PowerPoint have been standard installations in desktops around the world.

Initially Release to Manufacturing (RTM) versions of the upgraded software was made available for users to try out in October 2012. Some users even managed to get a more detailed look at the Office 2013 Professional Plus edition later in November 2012.

As usual the software company will release a slew of options for people with varying requirements. For example, students will be able to purchase a copy of the software sans Outlook, Publisher and Access for USD 139.99, whereas the full Professional version with all components will cost USD 399.99. There will also be an option for people to chose the USD 99 Office 365 subscription, which will allow for 5 computers to be covered by the software, along with 60 free Skype minutes, 20 GB SkyDrive space, but without Publisher and Access.
