Yesterday, we announced the release of Office 365 Home Premium, which is a reinvention of Microsoft’s Office product line for consumers. 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$99.99 for an annual subscription, the equivalent of US$8.34 per month.
In addition to the announcement above, we also shared that Office 365 will be available for business to purchase starting on February 27th and that Office 365 will be available to transact in our Open Volume Licensing programs and Full Package Product (Retail Box) channels beginning on March 1st. If you recall from the Day 1 keynotes at Worldwide Partner Conference 2012 in Toronto (check out at the 11:55 point in the MPN Live Daily Recap session), we announced that Office 365 would be coming to the Open Volume Licensing programs and the reception from the partners was phenomenal.
Based on these announcements yesterday, I wanted to bring you some information and resources to use regarding these to make sure you have the latest on these as you prepare for these releases:
This is a very exciting time for Microsoft, our partners, and our customers around the world. Be sure to take some time to go through all of the resources and information now available to you to prepare for the March 1st availability date for you to bring the Office 365 solutions to your customers through the Open Volume Licensing Programs.
