Office 2013 for Windows RT will ship with stripped down features

The Verge have come up with some interesting news.

Apparently Microsoft will be shipping a Preview version of Office 2013 RT as part of its Windows RT ARM-based tablets later this year. That version will apparently be upgradeable to a final copy in early 2013.

In order to ensure battery life and reliability are not impacted on tablet devices, Microsoft have decided to drop macros, third-party add-ins, and VBA support from the Office 2013 RT edition.

This is all subject to any official confirmation from Microsoft.

    The new Metro (or Whatever) OneNote is really good! If you are a OneNote fan (my life’s in mine) just give it a go on the tablet – it won’t dissapoint 🙂
