Microsoft unveils the new Office 2013 and Office 365

Today, Microsoft Corp. CEO Steve Ballmer unveiled the customer preview of the new Microsoft Office, available at office.com/preview. The next release features an intuitive design that works beautifully with touch, stylus, mouse or keyboard across new Windows devices, including tablets. The new Office is social and unlocks modern scenarios in reading, note-taking, meetings and communications and will be delivered to subscribers through a cloud service that is always up to date.

“We are taking bold steps at Microsoft,” Ballmer said at the press conference in San Francisco. “The new, modern Office will deliver unparalleled productivity and flexibility for both consumers and business customers. It is a cloud service and will fully light-up when paired with Windows 8.”

While the full lineup of offerings and pricing plans will be announced in the fall, Ballmer discussed three new Office 365 subscription services. When available, each new subscription offer will include the new 2013 editions of the Office applications — Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher and Access. In addition, subscribers will receive future rights to version upgrades as well as per-use rights across up to five PCs or Macs and mobile devices. The three new editions will be the following:

  • Office 365 Home Premium — designed for families and consumers. This service also includes an additional 20 GB of SkyDrive storage and 60 minutes of Skype world minutes per month.
  • Office 365 Small Business Premium — designed for small businesses. This service also includes business-grade email, shared calendars, website tools and HD webconferencing.
  • Office 365 ProPlus — designed for enterprise customers who want advanced business capabilities and the flexibility to deploy and manage in the cloud.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come
    across a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and
    without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something which too few folks are speaking
    intelligently about. I’m very happy I found this in my search for something concerning this.

    Theyy are working 2 or 3 partime minimum wage jobs just to eep their heads
    above water. Due to the matyuration of online
    communities known as blogs, annd the demanding zeitgeist
    of social media, the traditional print media outlets
    have more than just radio and television to contend with.
    The idea is to prevent the water dripping down the rpof from accumulating in the
    house.
