Microsoft releases Office 365 Personal option...

16 Apr 14

Microsoft has today made Office 365 Personal available for purchase, priced at $69.99 USD/year or $6.99 USD/ month (ERP).

As reported by last month, the option is designed for an individual, allowing for one PC or Mac and one tablet (including iPad) to be connected under a new consumer subscription offering.

“By offering Office 365 Personal, in addition to Office 365 Home, we are better positioned to deliver the right Office to a broader range of households–whether it’s an individual or a family of five,” wrote Jevon Fark, Senior Marketing Manager, Microsoft in a company statement.

Fark’s words echo those of colleague Chris Schneider, who last month said the tech giant recognises that there are households of all shapes and sizes and are subsequently committed to delivering the right Office for everyone – whether that be one person or an entire household.
