Report: Microsoft to Detail Office 2010 on Monday

Neowin cites insiders who claim the Redmond-based company will announce details of Office 2010 and its Office web applications on Monday, July 13 at its Worldwide Partner Conference in New Orleans, while other publications speculate that Google’s timing in announcing its Chrome OS was an effort to steal Microsoft’s thunder.

The story right now is that Microsoft will provide us with a little more information about Office Web, the company’s answer to Google Docs, which essentially brings as much of Microsoft’s Office suite to a browser as possible. This in turn will enable users to create, edit and share documents online.

VentureBeat also notes that Business Week’s June 24 cover story on Steve Ballmer and Office 2010 notes that Microsoft would offer details about its plans related to Office 2010 on July 13. It looks like Monday is shaping up to be a big day for Microsoft. Is anyone interested in seeing what Microsoft has to offer? Let us know in the comments below!

If you guys missed the oddly Hollywood “trailer” for Office 2010 we posted yesterday, you can check it out here.

    I like the 2010 Beta I got, very interested in what web based office they will provide and at what cost as Google Docs is free.

    Well the one thing that Google still has over Microsoft is that their docs are free. Why should I fork out 150 - 300 bucks every couple years for minor upgrades?
