Posted in Good Morning Silicon Valley: Peeking at Windows 8 (http://blogs.siliconvalley.com/gmsv/2012/02/29/peeking-at-windows-8/)
Windows 8 will come in two main flavors -- one that works on the traditional x86 chips made by Intel Corp for desktops and laptops, and a new version for the ARM microprocessors that have become the standard for tablets, smartphones and other portable devices.
WINDOWS + OFFICE = $

On a good note, OFFICE could be forced to take the same tack that PhotoShop has done: create a scaled down version for tablets (iPad, in this case, but others must be set to follow) in the form of a 10$ app.

My apologies, @kgun. My above post came before reading your posted article, and so misses the fact that OFFICE will be bundled with the ARM version on new tablets.

Don't know exactly which video is referenced above (@arungupta2012, how about a link, or even vidieo id), but this SERP seems like a good place to start watching:
