Microsoft's new Office 2013 is set to launch on Jan. 29 for non-business customers.

Rumors of the pre-order date were confirmed by The Verge that reported sites such as Future Shop, a Canadian retailer, have already started to offer the touch-friendly Office 2013 with the shipping date at the end of the month.

The new suite was first announced in 2012 and Microsoft began to offer Office 2013 to business customers in mid-November and made a consumer preview available for download even earlier. 

Microsoft officials still have yet to share publicly the planned launch date for Office 2013 and the related Office 365 refresh. But the company is beginning to prep its channel partners for the occasion.

Three Office 365 subscription packages will be available in the U.S., starting at $99 a year on subscription or $139.99 to $400 one-time standalone purchase, according to RedmondMag.

As for the U.K., PC Pro reports that the online retailer Argos has listed the productivity software bundles prematurely, leaking the cost of Office Standard, Office Home and Business, and Office Home and Student. Consumers will reportedly be able to get their hands on Office Home and Student for £110, and Office 365 Home Premium for either £80 or £6.66 per month.

The new suites by Microsoft come in a variety of packages developed for the particular need for the consumer.

Office 2013 will feature versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher and Access. Users will be able to install a version on up to five PCs, Macs or mobile devices, according to ZDNet.

Office 365 Home Premium is designed for families and consumers. It will include an additional 20GB of SkyDrive storage and 60 minutes of Skype world minutes a month.

Office 365 Small Business Premium will include business-grade email, shared calendars, website tools and HD web conferencing.

And Office 365 ProPlus is designed for enterprise customers who want advanced business capabilities and the flexibility to deploy and manage in the cloud.
