First Look At Outlook 2013 RT [Images]

Yesterday Microsoft confirmed that later this year Outlook 2013 will be available as a free upgrade for Windows RT tablet owners. Windows RT was released last year, other Microsoft programs such as Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Word were available for it, but Outlook was absent. Outlook 2013 will be released for Windows RT when it is updated later this year. Today we’ve been given a sneak peak of Outlook 2013 RT, the source claims that it looks just like Outlook 2013 on x86.

There are going to be some differences between the full fledged Outlook 2013 and Outlook 2013 RT program. For example, the latter is not capable of composing e-mails with information rights management, though it allows the reader to read e-mails sent with IRM. It also does not have data loss prevention capabilities, or the ability to sync with Microsoft Lync. Outlook 2013 for RT can not run tools such as Visual Basic for Applications, which are used by developers to run custom programs. Microsoft is apparently going to release Outlook 2013 RT when it releases Windows 8.1 Milestone Preview on 26th June. Over the next couple of days we’ll get to know more about how this program affects a Windows 8 tablet’s reliability, performance and battery life.
