Office 15 will launch in roughly the same timeframe as Windows 8

Office 2010 was released a little under over two years ago and Microsoft is now gearing up for its successor. PJ Hough, CVP of Development for the Microsoft Office Division, just announced today on the Microsoft Office Blog that Office 15 has now entered the Technical Preview stage.
 
With the Technical Preview, Microsoft is getting feedback from some its most important customers on what to change, what to keep, and what to throw out of the next iteration of Office. Of course, those customers are under an NDA so we still won't know much about the productivity unless someone starts leaking information out (which they inevitably will).
 
"I'm not able to share too much about Office 15, but I can tell you Office 15 is the most ambitious undertaking yet for the Office Division," said Hough. "With Office 15, for the first time ever, we will simultaneously update our cloud services, servers, and mobile and PC clients for Office, Office 365, Exchange, SharePoint, Lync, Project, and Visio. Quite simply, Office 15 will help people work, collaborate, and communicate smarter and faster than ever before.   "
 
Hough also made it clear that the public beta of Office 15 will be released this summer. We should expect to see the retail product launch later this year around the same time as Windows 8.

Businesses charge what maximizes profits. Every business would want lower costs of production because that would mean higher profits. Costs do not get 'passed on to consumers' they eat profits.
