Adobe Systems has begun selling both the full version of and upgrades to its Acrobat 7.0 family of software products, currently available only for online purchase and immediate download from its Adobe Store. The site indicates that the boxed version of the Professional and Standard flavors of Acrobat 7.0 will begin shipping in January 2005, and pre-orders can also be placed online if a physical shipment is preferred.
The following are now available (check respective System Requirements for desired platform):
- Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional – Full Version: $449, Windows or Macintosh
- Acrobat 7 Professional – Upgrade: $159, Windows or Macintosh
- Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Standard – Full Version: $299, Windows or Macintosh
- Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Standard – Upgrade: $99, Windows or Macintosh
Adobe will also be offering downloads of a free trial version of Acrobat 7.0, presumably when the boxed product begins shipping. (NOTE: The trial version of its Acrobat 6 product was available for MS Windows-based computers/users only.)
