Earlier this month, Microsoft showed a rare live public demo of the Windows RT version of Office 2013 at its TechEd conference in Orlando. Unlike Windows 8, which has now seen three pre-release versions available for the public to download and use, it has yet to offer any public pre-release versions of Office 2013 (it has released what it called a “Technical Preview” of Office 2013 to select developers and partners in January).

Today, the Dutch-based website bouweenpc.nl claims, via unnamed sources, that Microsoft has completed the first public beta build of Office 2013 Read more »

Microsoft: Morgan Stanley Ups Target to $37 on Office 15 Promise

Morgan Stanley’s Adam Holt this morning raised his price target shares of Microsoft  to $37 from $33, writing that the stock, trading at just 11 times the next twelve months’ projected earnings, is failing to reflect prospects for the next version of Office, version 15, which will likely be available not just on Intel  processors but also for versions of Microsoft’s operating system running on chips based on ARM Holdings‘s  architecture.

That could give Microsoft a big boost in tablet computers and other mobile devices running the forthcoming Windows 8, versus Apple‘s  iPad, thinks Holt, as Office 15 is not likely to show up on the iPad, at least not initially. Read more »

Six Features You’ll Love in Office 15

Most of the attention on Redmond this year is focused on the upcoming Windows 8 operating system. But, the next generation of Microsoft Office is also currently under development–ostensibly to be launched along side Windows 8 this fall–and Office 15 has the potential to be the real hero among the two. 

Microsoft has made a number of major changes to the latest version of Windows—not the least of which are the touchscreen optimized Metro interface, and adding ARM-based tablets as an option. But, as the de facto productivity suite for businesses, Microsoft Office is the standard bearer of the Microsoft Windows operating system and Office 15 has the power to drive adoption of Windows 8 by taking advantage of the unique capabilities of the new OS.

Whatever happened to the Microsoft Office 2012 Moorea app?

One of the first new tidbits to leak months ago about Microsoft’s Office 15 suite was the existence of what looked to be a new app, codenamed Moorea. Now that the Office 15 technology preview is available — albeit primarily to testers under non-disclosure agreements — is there any new word on Moorea?

There is, in fact. But from what I’m hearing, Moorea is not looking like it will be a new, standalone addition to the coming Office suite. Instead, it seems to have been folded into OneNote 15. (If you want more information on OneNote 15 — and other components of the Office 2012 client suite, Windows SuperSite’s Paul Thurrott has gotten his hands on the Office 15 technical preview bits.)

A glimpse at the upcoming Office product on Paul Thurrott’s Supersite for Windows reveals a new suite that tries to mimic the feel of Metro but runs as a traditional desktop program.

Microsoft Office 15 will come built for the desktop but offer a huge touch of the Metro flair, according to a description posted by Supersite for Windows author Paul Thurrott, who obtained a copy of an early preview version. Read more »

Microsoft is currently testing a Technical Preview version of Office 15, its next-generation Office productivity suite. A small number of third-party partners, OEMs, and businesses have access to the code, but Microsoft is staying mum on the exact features of its next release. We previously took a closer look at Office 15 with detailed screenshots of its new Metro inspired interface, showing off the clean and simple look for the future of Office. Today we are able to share details on a number of new and improved features in each of the core applications for Office 15, thanks to several people with access to the early Technical Preview code. From Touch and Reading Mode to a Weather Bar feature in Outlook 15, we have exclusive details on Microsoft’s plans — read on to find out more. Read more »

Microsoft Office 15 apps to include ‘touch mode’

By admin, February 28, 2012

The coming Office 15 client apps all seem to be getting a new ‘touch mode’ button that will enable them to work better on touch-centric devices.

It looks like Office 15 client apps are going to get more touchy, but in a way that won’t force touch on users who don’t want or need it.

One of the big questions many Microsoft watchers have had is how Microsoft plans to make its next-generation Office client apps more touch-friendly, so that they’ll be optimized to work on tablets and PCs running the touch-optimized Windows 8 operating system. Microsoft officials already shared that the four Office 15 apps that will be “included” on Windows 8 on ARM (WOA) tablets will be Desktop apps, not WinRT-based Metro-Style apps. So how will Microsoft make these versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote work better with touch than their current-generation counterparts? Read more »

Microsoft Office 2012 Technical Preview Review

Microsoft’s next-generation Office suite recently reached the Technical Preview stage, allowing third parties to test Microsoft’s pre-beta code. The software giant released early copies of Office 2012 to a number of businesses, partners and OEMs in January ahead of a public beta this summer. Thanks to a source with access to the Technical Preview, we’ve been able to get a closer look at Microsoft’s plans for its next Office suite.

Office 2012 applications all run as standard desktop apps across Windows 7 and Windows 8, and some will even come packaged in an ARM edition of Windows 8 later this year. Office 15 takes a different approach to design, minimizing the ribbon by default and using a full screen “backstage” menu (similar to Office 2010) with navigation controls on the left. A pin icon controls whether the ribbon interface is open or minimized, and it remains largely untouched at this stage of development. Microsoft’s Outlook 15 application, missing from the company’s preview of Office 2012 on ARM, looks the most changed – with a Metro-style navigation at the bottom of the application and the switch to “People” instead of the traditional “Contacts” naming.

 The Daily got a lot of folks hopes up earlier today with a rumor that Office would soon be making an appearance on the iPad, but Microsoft is now throwing a bit of cold water on that news. While it’s not exactly an outright denial that such an app is coming, a Microsoft spokesperson has now told The New York Times’ Bits website that “The Daily story is based on inaccurate rumors and speculation,” adding only that it has “no further comment” at this time. ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley, however, is further reporting that Microsoft is specifically saying that the screenshot accompanying The Daily’s story is not a real picture of a Microsoft product.
