Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is expected to launch the first beta of Office 15 in January according to WinRumors. Microsoft Office 15 is currently the code-name for the next version of Office. It is expected to be showcased at CES 2012 alongside Windows 8 beta.
Microsoft has redesigned the look and feel of Microsoft Office, including Outlook. The idea is to make their software usable by pen and mouse. Microsoft prepared a tile-based “Metro” user interface code-named Moorea too. This makes it easier for users to navigate to documents and pictures. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer himself confirmed that the new Office will feature a Metro style this past September.
