In addition to BPOS, the company currently offers Web-based versions of Excel, PowerPoint, Word, and OneNote that debuted along with Office 2010 earlier this year. An update to the Mac version of Office has also been finalized and goes on sale October 26.
Tomorrow's event will also mark the debut speech from, who will preside over the gathering.
