Microsoft has released a new beta version of Office 2010 for download for a complementary trial from the Microsoft website (www.microsoft.com/2010).

The latest release of Office contains several new features, including Outlook Social Connector.

The latest beta versions of SharePoint 2010 and Silverlight 4 can also be downloaded for a complimentary test.

Anne Taylor, Microsoft Information Worker Business Group Manager, says the release is the first time millions of people around the world will experience the “new innovation and capabilities” Microsoft Office 2010 offers.

“As exciting as this milestone is for our customers, I also believe that there has never been a better time for developers to build on the Microsoft platform.With a wealth of features and a single, unified business platform, developers can build rich solutions that take advantage of familiar tools and leverage core features of Office and SharePoint both on-premises and in the cloud.”

Office Mobile 2010 beta is also available for trial with Windows Mobile 6.5, making the Office experience across PCs, phones and browsers a reality. Office Mobile 2010 will give users the ability to create, edit, comment and save documents from a Windows Mobile, iPhone, Blackberry, Android or Symbian device, without disrupting the content or formatting of the document. The Office Mobile 2010 beta for Windows Mobile 6.5 is available at Windows Mobile Marketplace.
