Confirmed prices for Office 2013: in line with previous versions

Yesterday we heard about possible updates to Office 2013 from Office 2010, and read that one of the unknowns that remained clear about the new version of the Microsoft Office Suite was the price. Today they have taken care of those concerns in both the case of a subscription to Office 365 as in the case of those who want a single license.

Microsoft seeks to leverage the subscription of its Office subscription, and it shows, but probably many will think twice after seeing the numbers. The Office 365 subscription is priced at $8.33 dollars a month or $99.99 a year for the Home and Student version of Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, and including Outlook) that may be installed on up to 5 computers Windows or OS X.

This would include 60 minutes of Skype World monthly (lets you call traditional phones), and the ability to access Office from any computer by downloading the necessary files needed to run Office by allow us to access its valid components, and with the promise of several annual updates.

There will also be a form of Office 365 Premium, which does not include the Skype minutes but in return we can receive HD video conferencing via Lync and space to share calendars and documents via Exchange for employees of a small company (which is the ideal buyer of this subscription, priced at $149 per year per user). This would be in addition and primarily, the only option to access InfoPath.

But there will those looking to buy, simply, a license of Office 2013 for their computer. Prices here remain almost constant with respect to the previous version: $139 for the Home and Student version (without Outlook), $219 for the version that includes Outlook, $399 for the Professional version (with Access and Publisher). This version can only be installed on a PC, and in the case of the professional version, Windows only. And obviously not included in the price are upgrades to new versions.

However we still have a key mystery: when can we buy Office 2013 or subscribe to Office 365? November is supposed to be the month Estimated for its RTM, and by February its supposed to appear in the final version via various dealers. We will look into more details when they appear and post them here at
