Office 2013 RT briefly seen at TechEd

A preview of the next version of Office running on Windows on ARM was briefly seen during a keynote presentation at TechEd North America, Microsoft’s big annual conference for IT professionals happening this week in Orlando.

The next version of Office has been variously referred to as Office 15 and Office 2013. The TechEd peek — which happened during an on-screen demonstration of Windows 8 — apparently referred to the version as Office 2013 RT.

“RT” refers to the version of Windows 8 that will run on devices, such as tablets, with ARM-based processors.

Rafael Rivera, of the Within Windows blog, has a screen capture of Office 2013 RT, along with a dissection of its differences from the desktop preview version.
