Traditionally, tablets have been great for reading, listening to music, watching movies, or keeping the kids entertained, but they haven't met everyone's needs for staying organized and getting things done. All that changed with last week's announcement of Microsoft Surface with Windows RT, which, like all Windows RT devices, comes with Office Home & Student 2013 RT preinstalled at no additional charge.
Today, we're introducing a new offering for university and college students called Office 365 University. Available in the first quarter of 2013, Office 365 University will be offered online, at retail locations and at Microsoft Stores in 52 markets worldwide.
Starting today, eligible students can buy Office University 2010 or Office University for Mac 2011 and receive a free subscription to Office 365 University when it becomes available.
Today we reached an important milestone in the development of the new Office. Moments ago, the Office engineering team signed off on the Release to Manufacturing (RTM) build. This milestone means the coding and testing phase of the project is complete and we are now focused on releasing the new Office via multiple distribution channels to our consumer and business customers.
This is the most ambitious release of Office we've ever done. It spans the full family of Office applications, servers and cloud services. The new Office has a fresh, touch friendly design that works beautifully on Windows 8 and unlocks modern scenarios in social, reading, note-taking, meetings and communications. We are proud to achieve this milestone and are eager to deliver this exciting release to our customers.
The new Office provides powerful new capabilities and advancements that enterprises can get excited about. This fall, we have two major product-focused conferences - Microsoft Exchange Conference (MEC) in September and Microsoft SharePoint Conference (SPC) in November - that will dive deep into new features for enterprises. However, today you can view a video from July's Office preview event, which features demos of a sampling of the new Office's enterprise capabilities.
On July 16th, we unveiled the new Office, a cloud service that works beautifully with touch, stylus, mouse or keyboard on new Windows devices - from PCs to tablets. With this release, we're modernizing Office, and an important part of that is the introduction of new subscriptions. Subscriptions open a host of possibilities, and subscribing to Office 365 will be the best choice for many - especially families, people with multiple devices and small businesses.
With a single subscription, you can use Office across a wide variety of devices - everything from PCs and tablets to Macs. You can easily save to and access your documents from the cloud and personalize your experience with Office. We will update Office more frequently to support new scenarios, and subscribers will always be current with the latest innovations. Subscriptions also open new possibilities like integrating web services into Office in ways never before possible; in this release, we've added Skype calling minutes and SkyDrive storage, and in the future, we'll do more.
In this post, you'll find details on how to get the new Office 365 subscriptions for consumers and small businesses when available.
