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.
