Microsoft to launch cheaper version of Office software

Microsoft has recently revealed in an announcement that it will be offering a more affordable version of its popular Office suite of productivity tools in the coming months.  The new offering will be a cheaper version of Microsoft's existing cloud-based Office 365 program; and will be called Office 365 Personal.

According to the details shared by Microsoft, the forthcoming Office 365 Personal program has been designed for individual users; though it will otherwise be similar to the 2010-launched Office 365 Home and Office.

The new and affordable Office 365 Personal version will enable the connectivity of one PC or Mac and one mobile device to the service.  The cost of the new program - which will allow users to connect one computer and one mobile device - will be $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year.

Reuters has revealed in a recent report that Microsoft apparently has efforts underway to make Office 365 available for iPad and iPhone as soon as the move is approved by new Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.

In connection with the imminent launch of Office 365 Personal, Microsoft's Chris Schneider said: "We're committed to delivering a great Office experience to all of our customers and believe that giving you a choice about the Office 365 subscription that fits your unique needs is one way we can do that."
