Microsoft unveils new Office 2013, download the Customer Preview now
| by Roydon Cerejo |
Microsoft Corp. CEO Steve Ballmer unveiled the customer preview of the new Microsoft Office, optimised for the Windows 8 and touch-based devices like tablets. 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. You can download the Customer Preview of Office 2013 right here. Unlike the earlier versions of Office, the new one is tied into a subscription service of Office 365 and depending on the version you pick, you'll be able to download 'apps' like Word, Excel, etc on a limited number of PCs using a single licence. While pricing details will be announced at the time of launch, here are the three subscription models you can opt for:
A fresh new start
“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.” Office responds to touch as naturally as it does to keyboard and mouse. Swipe your finger across the screen or pinch and zoom to read your documents and presentations. Author new content and access features with the touch of a finger. You can use a stylus to create content, take notes and access features. Handwrite email responses and convert them automatically to text. Use your stylus as a laser pointer when presenting. Color your content and erase your mistakes with ease. OneNote and Lync represent the first new Windows 8 style applications for Office. These applications are designed to deliver touch-first experiences on a tablet. A new radial menu in OneNote makes it easy to access features with your finger. Office Home and Student 2013 RT, which contains new versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote applications, will be included on ARM-based Windows 8 devices, including Microsoft Surface.
