Microsoft announces that Office Home and Student 2013 will be bundled on all Windows RT tablets

All Windows RT tablets to include Office Home and Student

| Software News | Posted: Jul 18, 2012 2:33 am

Microsoft unveiled the new Office yesterday, and also announced that all tablet or hybrid devices that feature Windows RT will receive a copy of the new Office 2013 (Word, Excel, Power Point and OneNote) for free.

This is a great deal, and should secure Microsoft millions upon millions of sales of new hardware. It helps those who were, or are hesitant of upgrading, and scared that the new tablets won't run legacy programs written for Intel's x86 platform.

 

Microsoft's move to offer Office 2013 for free on all Windows RT-based devices is just a very slick move. We haven't seen anything like this from the company before, and I'm pretty sure none of the competition (I'm looking at you Apple, and Google) offer full-fledged productivity suites, for free, on their devices.
