Microsoft Surface Office 2013 and Surface 2 details
Details on the new Office 2013 for Surface revealed with insights into Surface 2.
We’ve seen that Windows RT (the operating system for devices such as tablets) on new Microsoft Surface tablets will be a “cut down” version of Windows 8 that offers all the amazing new touch features but without all the baggage of the old desktop.
A similar decision has been made for the Windows RT Office 2013 version and it’s understood that every Windows RT Surface tablet will ship with a preview edition of Office 2013, which can be upgraded to the full release.
Either way the Windows RT version will lack certain features of the desktop version such as macros, third-party add-ons and Visual Basic. All of which many users never used, while the core editing features will remain intact.
In other Windows RT and Microsoft Surface news it seems Microsoft is advertising for jobs that sound like it’s already working on next-generation Surface 2 devices.
The new jobs cover engineering jobs for large-screen devices, new power adaptors for portable devices and material specialists to engineer metals, ceramics, plastics and thin films.
Most intriguing is one job that will looking into alternative power sources, perhaps pedal power?
