Microsoft has confirmed that it will not be providing an upgrade for the upcoming version of Office for Mac 2011. It will mean that it will repeat the same thing it did by not providing any upgrade for the Windows Office 2010.
The lowest edition of the latest version of the software will also be without a dedicated e-mail client and this decision is also similar to the Windows Office.
Microsoft also revealed that it will be launching Office for Mac 2011 in the end of October this year. It has also announced a free offer for those who purchase the older version of Office for Mac 2008 between August 1 and November 30 this year. The Company has also decided to revamp various editions and the prices it will be offering.
Microsoft also wants to bring Mac versions along with its Windows software. The Company claims that the new versions of software will be economical and will ensure savings for its customers.
The base edition of the software Home and Student 2011 will be priced at $149 for a three-license version while the single-license version will cost $119.
It will also be offering Office for Mac Home and Business 2011 for $199 for a single-license version while a two-license version will cost $279.
The last time Microsoft released an upgrade for Office for Mac was in January 2009.
