The new Office with Modern design could reach next year # bldwin
Microsoft used the Build initial conference to show a taste of Office running an alpha version of PowerPoint. This demo features new design and touch functionality, it would be implemented in other programs in the suite. The only drawback is that this would be a reality until next year.
According to the site ZDnet, a spokesman for Microsoft said the new versions of Office, known as ” Gemini “, arrive at the Windows Store in 2014, although there is also the rumor that arrive before the end of the year to take advantage of the amount of equipment that will be released with the new update to Windows 8.1.
Microsoft took a few minutes of the initial conference to show multiple Windows PCs that will feature integrated versions of Office. Because the focus is boosting the touch functionality does not sound at all unusual that the new laptops and 2 in 1 have a version with Modern Design Office.
But of course, this is all speculation so we’ll have to wait for it to reveal more details of the new Office in Build 2013
