Microsoft Launches A Teaser Website To Promote Office 2013 Launch On Jan 29th


Microsoft has launched a teaser website to promote the launch of Office 2013 on January 29th. The next version of Office will be available for purchase by consumers as a service called Office 365 in addition to regular package version.

Office 365 Home Premium

A single subscription to Office 365 Home Premium covers the entire household.  While you use a laptop, your daughter can use the PC in the den, and your son can use a tablet.  You can each sign-in with your individual Microsoft accounts using your settings and accessing your documents, but you still need just one subscription to get:

  • All the Office applications: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Access, and Publisher.*
  • Ability to use Office on up to 5 PCs or Macs shared among all users in the home. Subscribers also have flexibility to change their 5 devices at any time, and full featured Office applications are available for temporary use on any PC.
  • Nearly 3 times the amount of SkyDrive storage with an additional 20GB over the 7GB you get for free.
  • 60 minutes of SkypeTMworld calling per month to keep in touch with family anywhere.**
  • Premium licenses that are always up-to-date with latest new features and services released regularly. With the new Office, new capabilities will be added multiple times per year.

Office 365 Home Premium, a single subscription for up to 5 users, will be available in both physical and online stores across 227 markets worldwide for $8.33 per month ($99.99 billed annually).  A free 30 day trial will also be available online.

    Does anybody know if it’s allowed for commercial or non-home use? I remember reading somewhere that it would be, though the article doesn’t say it is. If not, then it’s hardly more convincing than Home and Student for 3 PCs. For a little more than a yearly fee of 365, you get Office for virtually unlimited time. Still, some may find it useful.

      I’m thinking this would be great for college students. Spliting the subscription cost between 5 friends for 4 years is about $70 dollars cheaper per person than purchasing the Home and Student version.

    Hmm, the print advertising does not mention Access or Publisher as a part of the Office 365, $99.99 deal. Are there different versions of Office 365 with different prices? If it is all inclusive, I’m interested.
