Windows RT Tablets Will Have Office 2013 Preview Only

Microsoft is going to release its Surface Tablet with Windows RT on October 26. The company earlier announced that Office 2013 will be included with all Windows RT-powered devices. But, we have come to know that, Windows RT tablet won’t get the full Office 2013.

Sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans are saying that the company will ship a Preview version of Office 2013 for Windows RT tablets later this year. The reason for that disappointing decision allegedly comes from battery life and reliability concerns.

Macros, third-party add-ins, Virtual Basic for Applications (VBA) support, and a small number of other features will be excluded from Office 2013 for Windows RT. But not to worry; as there will be an option to update from Preview version to the full version of Office 2013 sometime next year. Microsoft hasn’t confirmed anything about it, yet.
