Office 365 Personal subscription plan launched, includes iPad editing

Office for iPad

Microsoft has today unveiled a cheaper subscription option for Office 365 – Personal. Previously, consumers had to fork out $10 a month for the Home package, allowing up to 5 installations of Office. With the new iPad suite now available, the company has launched a package that limits installations, but opens up support for iPads and comes with a more affordable price tag.

So just how much will consumers be expected to pay for the new Personal edition? $65.99 a year, or $6.99 a month. That’s $3 cheaper than Home 365, a welcomed move by those who only use a single install. The packages can be purchased at Office365.com, Microsoft Stores and supporting retailers.

Should you be holding off on Office 365 for a more affordable subscription package to be made available, now’s your time to get involved. Office 365 remains free for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone owners.

Which is good but what you didn't mention was that it was also month-to-month as an option.

Meanwhile this (http://amzn.to/Qnglhk) Home Subscription costs $63.15 for 5 PCs/Macs and can active the Office for iPad too.

Exactly, I've used these for several friends. Honestly, they used to pirate Office. For ~$70/year to cover 5 computers, it is affordable for almost anyone.

Not sure why you'd want to pay the same for just 1 computer.

Interesting. Thank you for the link.

It's still $2 a month too expensive. Just make it $5 a month - Not $5.99, not even $4.99, just an honest five bucks and sell cards to add subscription credit without having to fork over credit card numbers, then we'll talk.

I like the idea of buying a card, like for xbox love and stuff. I'd consider that!
