It was definitely something that many users felt was missing, but now Windows RT devices will get their own version of Microsoft Outlook. Microsoft made several announcements at Computex in Taipei this morning, here are the latest details.
One of the largest announcements is that the Microsoft 8.1 update will bring with it a new version of Outlook for the Surface RT tablets and Windows tablets (even ones not made by Microsoft). The new ‘Outlook RT 2013’ will allow greater functionality for Outlook users, a group that has had to make do with the application being noticeably absent from their tablet devices since the launch of Windows 8. The application ‘Outlook RT 2013’ was first shown at the Computex show and is headed out along with the update later this month.
The differences in Outlook and Outlook RT 2013 are small and most likely won’t be an issue for most users. The new Outlook 2013 RT will come free as part of the Windows 8.1 update through the Windows Store and will offer IT departments the ability to, “manage some settings, give certificates, and protect data, even if it’s my personal system if I want to let them do that to get access to work resources.” This according to Microsoft latest notes.
The new update will release, “in about a week for Surface” adding more function keys, toggling between classic and new UI components, battery and memory management and a host of other small upgrades and tweaks for users.
Also confirmed at the event was that small 7″ and 8″ Windows 8 tablets will ship with a free version of Microsoft Office 2013. This according to Windows CFO Tami Reller.
