iWork for iPad announced

Apple has announced the new version of their iWork suite at today's media event, along with the launch of the tablet, named the iPad. Rumors predicted that today we'd see an update to iLife, not iWork, though Apple have certainly made sure it works well on the new device.

There are no announcements regarding the OS X version of iWork, though Apple showed off a lot of how the new version works. Everything has been rewritten and redefined for the new resolution and interface, working much like it would on an iPhone, although, of course, you won't be able to purchase iWork for your iPhone. Typing is done either via an on-screen keyboard or with the keyboard dock from Apple, though the touch interface is very intuitive when it comes to other aspects of the software. It's much easier to describe it in pictures, so we've included a gallery, with photos courtesy of Engadget.

The new software is available upon the launch of the iPad, in two months, for the price of $10 an app on the iPad. There are three apps, so for the full suite, it'll set you back $30. If you'd like to get your hands on this, you'll have to wait it out until the launch of the device.
