Outlook RT Will Arrive Later This Year
"Microsoft will make available as part of its upcoming Windows 8.1 "Blue" release of Windows client the rumored Outlook 2013 RT mail client, company officials confirmed on June 5."
This information was confirmed by Tami Reller, Microsoft's Chief Financial Officer of Windows according to Foley's ZDNet report.
But here's the interesting thing about Outlook RT, if the report is accurate, it won't replace Windows Mail client. Sounds a bit nuts, no? Given the opportunity to use Outlook or the basic featured bundled email client, I'd pick Outlook all day long. But then again, I can't seem to pick an email client for personal use (web-based or native code on my Mac or PC) that I like and use consistently.
