As you know by now, I have installed the Office 365 Preview on several of my and my household computers. It looks to be an amazing product, that will probably launch sometime next month (October 2012).
Office 365 is promising to offer an Office 2013 package consisting of the following applications; Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, Access and OneNote, to you as a subscriber allowing you to have the suite installed on up to 5 devices. With SkyDrive integration, as well as a streaming version of Office on demand, this is almost too good to be true. But of course, it all comes down to price. I have previously mused that a sweet spot for me would be somewhere between $5 and $10 dollars a month, but never really believed the price would eventually turn out to be that low. It looks like my wishes are granted, and that my beliefs were wrong.
According to an article on the Verge today, written my Tom Warren, Microsoft will announce that the subscription price for Office 365 Home Premium will be $8.33 a month ($99.99 pr year).If that report turns out to be true, which I believe it will, that is a no-brainer and should help male Microsoft’s wet dream of millions of consumer subscribers come true.
Check out Tom Warrens article, and see the comparison chart showing in detail which features will be in the different versions of the suite.
