Microsoft to bundle Office 2013 in "small" Windows 8 tablets for free

Aside from announcing that Outlook 2013 will be coming to Windows RT 8.1 later this year, Microsoft has revealed at Computex 2013 that all new "small" x86 tablets running Windows 8 will come with basic Office 2013 apps for free. Tami Reller at Microsoft's keynote said that Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote would be bundled on new 7- and 8-inch Windows 8 tablets, but didn't provide any other details.

This follows with what we've seen in recent tablet launches, such as the 8-inch Acer Iconia W3, which comes with a free copy of Office 2013 installed out of the box. Expect more information about Windows 8 and the inclusion of these Office 2013 apps at BUILD 2013, Microsoft's developer event scheduled for later this month.
