Office 365 E1 and K1 plans changing

Some changes have just been announced for the new Office 365 E1, E2 and K1, K2 plans. The official statement is at:

But in summary:
- Office Web Apps read/write ability is being added to E1 and K1 plans
- E2 and K2 plans will get priced at E1 and K1 plans (as they are effective the same feature set now).
- E1 and E2 to merge and K1 and K2 plans to merge eventually.
Here’s the line up:

This move makes a lot of sense in my books as there was not a lot of difference between the E1 and E2 plans. It also makes more room for the M plans expected with the new release.
I’m sure there are still plenty of changes to come. Stay posted.
