Karachi - January 31st, 2013 - Microsoft announced worldwide availability of Office 365 Home Premium, a reinvention of the company’s flagship Office product line for its consumers in Pakistan. Office 365 Home Premium is a cloud service designed for busy households and people juggling ever-increasing work and family responsibilities. The new offering includes the latest and most complete set of Office applications; works across up to five devices, including Windows tablets, PCs and Macs; and comes with extra SkyDrive storage and Skype calling — all for US$79.99 for an annual subscription, the equivalent of US$6.67 per month.

“The New Office is full of features that will allow people to access information from wherever they are allowing them to effectively manage their work life and find time to do things they want to strike the requisite balance” said Amir Rao - the New Country Manager for Microsoft Pakistan.

Microsoft also announced it will now deliver many new features and services to the cloud first, transforming the company’s traditional three-year release cycle. Now, new features and services stream to subscribers as soon as they are ready, keeping subscribers always up to date while eliminating the hassles of upgrading.

“This is a major leap forward,” said Kurt DelBene, president of the Microsoft Office Division. “People’s needs change rapidly, and Office 365 Home Premium will change with them.”
