Earlier today we reported on a rumor that Office for Mac 2011 will be launching on October 27th, but tonight we’ve discovered otherwise. When browsing for Office for Mac 2011 on Amazon there’s a noted date of October 26th, 2010 on the titles of both the Home/Business and Student editions. Amazon is notorious for revealing product release dates before announcements and with Microsoft stating the software would be launching in October, we are pretty confident the 26th is launch day.

Office for Mac 2011 will launch at $99 (academic license), $119, or $199 depending on whether the Business/Home or Student edition is purchased. The next-gen productivity suite offers new themes, a re-designed interface, better collaboration tools, and improved Windows compatibility.
