When Apple started offering pre-orders on the iPad, it also gave away more details about the iWork applications (Pages, Numbers, and Keynote) for the mobile tablet device.
Pages will give you the ability to email documents as Pages, Word, or PDF attachments. You will also have the ability to import and edit Pages or Word documents into the application from an email. While you're editing a document, you can rotate the iPad for a distraction-free writing experience. You can also wirelessly connect an Apple Keyboard via Wi-Fi, or use the keyboard dock to type out longer documents. Additionally, there are 16 document templates included in Pages for iPad.
Keynote gives you the ability to view and edit Keynote or PowerPoint files on the iPad. The application includes 12 pre-designed themes. You can import photos and videos from your photo library to insert into your presentations, as well as choose and set slide animations and transitions. You can also use the optional display adapter to connect to a projector where slides can be presented.
Numbers includes 16 templates for home, work, and school related spreadsheets. A full-screen mode enables you to view your documents horizontally. You can also use forms to gather data without entering information directly into a spreadsheet. Just like Pages and Keynote, you can send and import Numbers and Excel files right from your email.
When exporting from Pages, Keynote, and Numbers, you also have the ability to upload files directly to the iWork.com beta website. Each of the iWork applications will be available for sale individually on the App Store for $9.99. They will be available for the iPad launch on April 3, 2010.
You can view all of the information about iWork, including viewing screenshots on the iPad features page.
