Microsoft today announced
the (official) launch of the Office 2010 beta.
The official launch has come a week after the beta was leaked onto torrent sites. Microsoft first announced the beta on its website and Kurt DelBene, Office unit senior vice president at Microsoft, later confirmed the launch at the ongoing Professional Developers Conference (PDC). The beta can be downloaded from
the official Office 2010 website.
The beta of Office Mobile 2010 is also now available from the Windows Mobile Marketplace. However, it is only meant for Windows Mobile 6.5. The consumer version of Office Web Apps – the online version of Office - is yet to bid adieu to the technical preview stage, however, the enterprise version has safely reached beta.
