I've heard some people say that Windows 8 tablets will come with a free copy of Office, some people say that you have to buy Office, and some say that only if you get a "Windows RT" tablet it comes with Office.

Which is correct?

IMO, Wondering if Windows 8 will come with Office is not a problem that needs an answer from us. :) Plus you jump from "Will it come with office?" to "What's RT?. – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Aug 18 '12 at 4:55
you're asking 2 questions in one, please ask one – Sathya Aug 18 '12 at 5:14

Office Home & Student 2013 RT Preview (possibly branded without the "Preview") will come bundled with Windows RT tablets for free. It will be upgradable to the final version of Office 2013 when it's released.

And, none of these devices will be available until late Oct. – uSlackr Aug 18 '12 at 2:58
"AFAWK" isn't very useful. It's just guessing at the future. – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Aug 18 '12 at 5:16
updated to only talk about office, and in addition removed the AFAWK :) – MatthewSot Aug 18 '12 at 5:18
