Microsoft is still keeping mum on the next major release of its Office productivity suite, but it let slip today at the TechEd North America 2012 conference in Orlando that it would be called Office 2013.
At the end of the keynote, the company briefly demoed Office 2013 for Windows RT devices, confirming previous rumors on its name.
The suite of applications is expected to arrive with a series of enhancements to fit the Windows 8 Metro UI, and the screenshot that can be seen attached to this post (courtesy of WithinWindows
) confirms that.
The Redmond-based software giant has been focused on enabling easy navigation on touch devices running Windows RT, along with implementing a full screen view for tablet owners.
UI changes should affect the Office Web Apps
as well. A beta flavor of Office 2013 is expected to arrive before the end of June.
