Two days after cutting the cost of putting Windows 8 RT on a tablet, Microsoft has announced that Office 2013 will now be included free of charge on all 7- and 8-inch Windows 8 tablets, reports The Verge from Computex.

Microsoft has revealed that future 7- and 8-inch Windows 8 tablets will ship with a free copy of Office 2013. Speaking at Computex on Wednesday, Windows CFO Tami Reller revealed plans for Office Home and Student 2013 to be bundled with “small” Windows 8 tablets. It’s up to OEMs to bundle the software, which includes access to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote.

Windows 8 tablets are struggling to compete with Android and iOS, with Microsoft’s own Surface tablets believed to have less than a 1 percent market share.
