Straight from the rumor mill for you guys. According to a new report, Microsoft will release Office 2013 to retail stores beginning January 29th. The report states that Microsoft will release Office 2013 in Germany as well as other countries.
Microsoft announced back in October of last year that Office 2013 had finally hit RTM (Release to Manufacturing) and that we would see general availability during the first quarter of 2013. Office 2013 brings a new touch friendly design for use with the company's Windows 8 operating system. Volume License customers have been able to grab Office 2013 since mid-November of last year via TechNet or MSDN.
If this rumor is true, then this is great news for those who are eager to get their hands on Office 2013. For now, those of us without volume licensing can grab a 60 day trial of Office 2013 in the meantime.
