Steve Ballmer to launch Office 365 on June 28

Microsoft schedules press event to reveal details on cloud service

We reported a few days ago that Office 365 is set to launch in June, and sure enough it looks like Steve Ballmer will be in New York City on June 28 to reveal the details on Microsoft's cloud-based productivity service. 

Microsoft just sent out invitations to press for an event "with Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer to hear the latest about Office 365, our next generation cloud productivity service which brings collaboration to everyone." 

Microsoft will have partners and customers on hand to talk up the new service, which provides Web-based access to Exchange, SharePoint, Lync and Office, and is an upgrade over the current Business Productivity Online Suite. Office 365 has been in beta testing since last year.

We'll provide more details as we get them.
