Microsoft to reveal Office 2013 later today

A few hours ago Microsoft announced that it will be holding a press conference at Noon, PDT. Not long after that announcement, a flood of information began hitting the web that all aligns to the previous rumor that Office 2013 would be shown off today.

The image above comes from Winunleaked.info and the language is clear, the Office Customer Preview information will be unvieled later today. The image above also suggests that there will be a download available too.

Below is another picture from IThome that appears to show the new icons that will come with the new version of Office. 

We only have a few more hours until Microsoft announces the new platform and who knows, maybe they will have a few more surprises to announce but until then, this is all we know, for now.

What I am waiting for, is that MS finally get in gear and unify the Windows and Mac versions at the same time and unify the suites for both platforms!

The Office logo and icons are re-drawings and not the official polished logo/icons. If you look at the other article with the event banner, the Office logo is more polished and the angles are correct. Same with the screenshots with the icons.

Anyone noticed the iPhone in the bottom picture with the Office "start page"?

Office 365, which is pretty much the online version of Office.

Just so everyone knows... that logo and the icons are fake... someone re-drew them. You can tell by the incorrect fonts and angles.

The official ones look similar and more polished, these are just someone's drawing.
If you look at the official banner on the other Neowin post, it has the correct logo.

This. I call these webpage pictures also fake because if you compare them with the page of Windows 8 (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/home/) then you can see the box placing is different and the Sign Up button is not relevant to the buttons shown on the Windows page.

Also why would Microsoft show "Powerpoint 2013" in one screen, while on the other there is "Word 15"?

Outlook needs to be yellow, so many people have come associate a yellow icon with outlook.

I agree, but I doubt they'll change it now

I think people who use Outlook can read and adjust their brains to new color.

You are being very generous with people who use Outlook. I know for a fact that very dumb people use Outlook. Even people who claim to be computer geniuses have trouble adapting to simple changes (just read the comments on this website)

I use Outlook and I might be dumb but....... at least I can understand the difference between an useful change and an useless one; it seems that a lot of posters today miss this basic ability.

Anyone else think the new icons look like boats, but on their side? rotate them 90 to the left...

Have you ever seen a boat in your life?

OMG!! Same happens if you rotate them 360 degrees!!

As much as I don't like the bland icons, they do at least represent their product clearly. Which is the point of Metro.

Except the apps don't actually run in Metro but within the desktop environment…

That is because nothing runs in Metro. What everybody keeps referring to as "Metro" is actually the Immersive UI. Metro is a design guideline.

I don't think so, and if it is, my guess is Microsoft will not release it before their own tablet is out with Office.

Quick question: How does Office 365 work on the iPhone?
