Microsoft releases final versions of office Excel, Word and PowerPoint for tablets only

Microsoft has been working hard today and it released the final forms of Excel, Word and PowerPoint for Android tablets. The apps have been in preview form for a while now, but the time has come for the final versions to become available to the public.

 

 

You can download the apps on tablets only for free if you have at least 1 GB of RAM and an ARM processor. These apps officially support Android 4.4, but we’re pretty sure Lollipop devices will work as well. In order to create files, print them and edit them all you have to do is sign in with your Microsoft account.

If you want some premium features you will require an Office 365 subscription.

OneNote has already been available on Android tablets and phones for a while now.

No particular changes were mentioned in the logs but there must have been some bug fixes at least before launching. You can check the Microsoft apps for tablets below.

HP enters the Windows-Chromebook battle with two affordable devices powered by Microsoft

HP is entering the low-budget market with two interesting devices. The said items are a $99 Windows tablet and a $199 laptop that look pretty good and have a not too shabby hardware spec either!

HP’s Stream 7 tablet is accompanied by an 8” tablet sold for $149 coming in November. The tablets are powered by Intel chipsets and share a one-year sub to Office 365 Personal which offers 1 TB of OneDrive storage and 60 minutes of Skype calls given each month. The 8” version also offers 200 MB of free LTE data a month without contract for as long as you use the device.

HP moves in on the Chromebook department with its Windows 11.6” Stream laptop and a 13.3” version with possible touchscreens. The laptops have Intel Celeron processors with a fanless design, 32 GB of flash storage and a one-year subscription for Office 365 Personal. Stream 11 costs only $199, whereas the Stream 13 costs $229 and essentially they are both low-cost devices destined to basic needs. The laptops are available in magenta and blue and they will start shipping starting the holiday season.
