Microsoft Office 2010 box art revealed

Polish site CentrumXP has revealed the official box art for Office 2010.

CentrumXP were the first to unveil the Windows 7 box art back in May this year so we're confident that this latest imagery is genuine. Microsoft confirmed earlier this week that demand for the Office 2010 beta had been strong as downloads hit 1 million in just two weeks.

Microsoft introduced the Office 2010 beta during its now annual Professional Developers Conference in Los Angeles late last month. Company officials demonstrated various new features during a keynote on November 18 including social networking integration into Outlook 2010, and Office Web Applications that allow you to read, edit and save documents in the browser.

Earlier last week a Microsoft spokesperson confirmed that the software giant will be making Office 2010 available in June 2010. Office 2010 will be released in six different flavours, including a free version that includes Microsoft Word and Excel, but comes with limited functionality and includes advertisements. The editions of Office 2010 will come in Starter, Home and Student, Home and Business, standard, Professional and Professional Plus. No official pricing for the full version or upgrade edition of Office 2010 has been announced yet. Although the retail store date is scheduled for June 2010, users should be able to get their hands on a download-able version through TechNet and MSDN earlier than the street date.

If you're interested in trying out the Office 2010 beta then it's available for download for free. If you want to know what's new then check out Neowin's Office 2010 top new features guide.
