Basically speaking, software giant Microsoft had spent an awful year. Windows 8 didn’t make traditional computer more favored in the market and Surface RT even failed to challenge Google Nexus 7. CEO Steve Ballmer not only had irritated the Board, but also lost Steven Sinofsky. Therefore, as the key product of Microsoft, the upcoming Office 2013 bears lofty expectations to bring good beginning to the company in 2013. Months after the spreading of old rumors about Office 2013 price and Office 2013 releasing date, the latest Office 2013 predictions come out in recent days. Originated from reliable resources, the Office 2013 rumors tell more about the price and releasing date of Office 2013.

Office 2013 Rumors: Office 2013 price

The major controversy between new and old Office 2013 rumors lies in the releasing date. According to previous Office 2013 predictions, Microsoft Office 2013 will come to retail market in late March. However, the latest rumors about Office 2013 releasing date have corrected the date to late January in Canada.  As for the price of Office 2013, it generally goes the same with the previous price of Microsoft Office 2013. Office Home & Business is available for 219 dollars and Office Home & Student charges for 139 dollars. Moreover, the Office 2013 rumors also tell about the price of Office Standard 2013 which is 369 dollars and Office Professional Plus which is 499 dollars. Even though much information about Office 365 has been released, the Office 2013 rumors indeed hint that Microsoft is encouraging users to take serious considerations about purchasing subscriptions.

However, even though Microsoft Office 2013 is not officially released, users are not strange to it. Since its release in summer 2012, Microsoft had provided various versions of Microsoft Office 2013 including trial version and preview version. Therefore, here comes a puzzle of most users, how can they keep using an unreleased product for months? In fact, Microsoft had already released Office 2013 for developer or enterprises in late fall 2012. Here the Office 2013 generally refers to the version for retailers and individuals. However, a pitiful thing about the Office 2013 rumors is that no information about the highly desired Mobile Office 2013 for Android and iOS has been revealed.

Rumored to be released in the first quarter of 2013, Mobile Office 2013 turns out to be the new attempt of Microsoft to extent its business and service to mobile field. Currently, a common way to play PowerPoint on Android or iOS devices is to convert PowerPoint to video. Therefore, Mobile Office 2013 is expected to provide another solution to the problem. However, it seems that Mobile Office 2013 has bite more than it can chew. Providing the fact that PowerPoint 2013 for Windows Phone is quite limited in function, Mobile Office 2013, who only provides scanning function for free, only get a dim chance to do any better.
