Office Live launches Wednesday

office%20live%20beta%20logo News After we hinted at the upcoming beta launch yesterday, Mary Jo Foley has gone right out and given the expected time and date: Wednesday 15th February, 6am PST (2pm GMT).

Beta testers will require a product key in order to access the beta program, so keep one eye on your inbox and another on http://officelive.microsoft.com/. As will be visible when the portal finally opens on Wednesday, Office Live Collaboration and Essentials are expected to be available from $29.95 once the beta finishes at the end of 2006. This is also the time we expect international betas to commence.
