Microsoft has just confirmed that it will launch Office 2013 on January 29th in New York after the company teased the date on Twitter. The company has been using #TimeTo365 over the past few days as a viral ad campaign.
The subscription versions of Office 2013 will cost $100 per year for Office 365 Home Premium and $150 per year for Office 365 Small Business Premium. The Home Premium edition includes access to Word, Excel, Powerpoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher and Access that can be installed on up to five computers, while the Small Business Premium edition adds access to Lync and InfoPath.
Boxed copies sold in retail locations will be offered in three different versions also. Office Home & Student can be had for $140, Office Home & Business for $220 and Office Professional will be available for $400.
Microsoft announced Office 2013 last July and promised the final product would be released in the first quarter of 2013.
