Insider reports suggest that Microsoft will reveal details for its next Office version, code-named Office 15 this coming Monday.
As demoed back some time ago, the new Office suite will feature better touch-response and a polished UI called Touch mode. Microsoft is expected to call the final release Office 2013. Office 2013 will also debut in Windows RT tablets such as the Surface. Microsoft had also handed specific people a Technical Preview of its next-gen Office suite.
Incoming reports suggest that Steve Ballmer may personally announce the launch of the Office 2013 Beta. The beta would be open to consumers and businesses, and would fall squarely in time for the important Microsoft conference, MGX. Office 15 is expected to launch at or around the same time as the launch of Windows 8…..which is now confirmed to launch in 109 Languages and 231 Markets.
