Yesterday, at a press event in San Francisco, Steve Ballmer unveiled the new Office  and announced a public Customer Preview.

This next release is a bold step for Microsoft and has been described as “the most transformational release” in Office’s history.

The new Office lights up when paired with Windows 8 devices and features a fast and fluid, yet familiar, look that responds to touch and pen as naturally as it does to mouse and keyboard. This new release is in the cloud, and your documents are available wherever you go across virtually all your devices. The new Office is social and makes it easy to connect to the people and information you care about. The new Office unlocks new scenarios in digital note-taking, reading, and meetings.

To learn more, watch Ballmer’s speech with demos, read about key investment areas, and sign up for the Customer Preview.

We look forward to sharing more details  on Office Next as we bring the new Office to market. And always, we look forward to your feedback!
