Office 2013, Microsoft’s latest version of its iconic productivity suite, has been available to businesses since mid-November, and consumers have been able to try it out in preview form for quite some time. (A preview version of Office 2013 RT is also pre-installed on all Surface RT tablets.) However, until now, we have been waiting on word from Microsoft on when we should expect the full Office 2013 suite to be available.
The company previously revealed that its Office 365 subscription service giving users access to the Office 2013 suite would cost $99.99 per year, while different standalone versions of the suite will range from $139.99 to $399.99.
It looks like we finally have a launch date for Microsoft Office 2013, Best Buy Canada and its Future Shop sibling are both listing multiple entries for Microsoft’s Office 2013 and Office 365 in downloadable and retail forms, which says that the product is set to be released on January 29th.
The Nexus 10 stock at the Play Store was depleted pretty quickly when it launched, so it’s good to see the 10-inch Google tablet moving to other stores. Staples have it on pre-order right now, but unfortunately won’t start deliveries until two-to-three weeks.
Meanwhile, the tablet has been torn down, revealing what makes it tick (spoiler: plenty of Samsung-made parts).
Let’s look at the Staples deal first though – they only have the 32GB Nexus 10 right now and it’s priced at $499, matching the Play Store price. Deliveries are expected to start in 17-24 days, which is a pretty long wait and people might prefer to get it from the Play Store anyway.
We’ll be on the lookout for more retailers offering the Nexus 10 – just in case there are further issues with the Play Store or there‘s an extra perk. We’d appreciate a tip if you spot any deals.
The tablet gets its power from a Samsung Li-Ion battery with 9000mAh / 22.75Wh capacity. The processing power comes from a Exynos 5250 chipset and data is stored in flash memory manufactured by Samsung.
