Though there has been a lot of attention on Windows 8 lately, it looks like the new version of Microsoft Office, Office 15, is coming to the limelight.
In this screenshot of a revamped Outlook, Microsoft seems to be implementing the Metro UI on Office. The ribbon seems to be minimized, so it can’t be seen if the tab elements have been redesigned. Office 15 has been reported to be released as early as 2012 by some sources, but some say that it will be released later.
As earlier reported by Premier Microsoft, Microsoft Office will also be able to run on ARM-based Windows 8 tablets, and there is increasing evidence that Office may soon be released for iOS. A release of Microsoft Office on iOS devices would open up a whole new market for their Microsoft Office suite.
