Microsoft on June 16 announced a new Office that the enterprise software giant has give a final, official name. The business productivity application suite, which the news media are calling either Office 2013 or Office 15 until Microsoft lays down the final branding, comes with a host of improvements designed to make the software more cloud- and mobile-friendly.
When Will Office 2013 Launch?
Microsoft is not saying when Office 2013 and the Office 365 companion products will launch. But given that the new Office is called Office 2013, it's a good bet that we won't see the new software suite until next year. Microsoft released Office 2010, the most recent version of the productivity suite, in June 2010, seven months after the initial beta release.
How Much Will Office 2013 Cost?
Since Microsoft isn't discussing pricing yet, we don't know how much the company hopes to charge Office 365 Home Premium subscribers. Microsoft charged $150 for Office 2010 Home and Student Edition, so that's probably a good ballpark figure for the amount that non-365 users will pay for the boxed versions.
Will Android and iOS Apps Be Available?
We've heard some rumblings indicating that native iOS apps (and possibly Android apps) will be available as part of the new Office 365 subscriptions when Office 2013 launches. Windows-focused blogger Paul Thurrott reports that Android and iOS apps may even count against the five installs for Office 365 users. Microsoft already offers OneNote for iOS and Android devices. Rumors about Office for the iPad have been circulating for some time.
