Microsoft said today it is releasing pricing details for its Office 2010 editions launching later this year.
"Office 2010 will be offered in four versions, to make it easier to choose a version of Office that’s best for you – Office Home and Business, Office Professional, Office Home and Student, and Office Professional Academic," Microsoft said in a blog post.
Office Home and Student will be available for $149, Office Home and Business will cost $279, Office Professional will sell for $499 and Office Professional Academic will retail for $99.
Microsoft is also offering Product Key Cards for Office 2010, which are single license cards (with no DVD media) that will allow users to access Office 2010 on new PCs that have been pre-loaded with Office 2010. The Product Key Cards will be available at most major retailers.
"Office Home and Student boxed product is available in a Family Pack, allowing usage on three PCs in one house," Microsoft said.
"Purchase rights for Office Home and Business, Office Professional, and Office Professional Academic boxed product allow for usage on two of your PCs. The Product Key Card is valid for a single installation of the product."
