Mockup shows Office 2013 for WP8

Mockup shows Office 2013 for WP8
Microsoft just showed off the future of Office with an overview of Office 2013 yesterday, but the presentation was all about desktops and tablets and no word on what the app would look like on Windows Phone 8. Now, we're seeing a mockup of what that app could potentially look like. 

Not surprisingly, the app shown in the mockup doesn't look all that different from the version of Office that is available on Windows Phone 7 devices, although it is clear right at the top that this is new because of the new Office logo. 

Additionally, Microsoft does go over a few features which will be new in Office 2013 which will be available on WP as well as Windows RT, and Windows 8. There is a new feature which will save your place as you're reading through a document, and sync that placeholder across your devices. Additionally, Skydrive will be the default save location if you are signed in to your Live account. 

Overall, it's looking pretty good. We just want to get a chance to play with it.

Just a question, is MS going to update the office in current win phone 7 to this version?
