Microsoft’s big bet, Office 2010 will soon hit the shelf (the professional edition is already available) and while MS competitors are taking a shot at the new product launch, there is a genuine interest in the product, given the success of Windows 7 (Within 6 months of launch, Windows 7 has captured 10% of PC Market Share).
Office 2010 enables collaboration (skydrive) and will eventually be available in 94 languages.
In India, Office 2010 will be priced between Rs. 5,000 to 20,000 depending on the edition you want to buy.
Here is the breakdown:
- Home and Student Edition: Retail Version (i.e for consumers) will be priced around Rs. 5,000 and expect availability date is June 15th.
- Professional Edition: will be priced at Rs. 10,000 onwards upto Rs. 20,000.
Even though Microsoft has tried to bring down the number of versions of the product (Ultimate, Student, Home, Standard, Professional) continues to confuse the user.
The good news is that if you buy Office 2007 now, you get a free upgrade to 2010, when the product is made available.
If you have been using Office 2010 beta version, we would like to know your feedback/review.
