Apple debuts iWork for iPad tablet

During its introduction of the new iPad tablet computer, Apple also unveiled new versions of its iWork productivity apps, designed especially for the new iPad tablet. Consisting of Keynote, a PowerPoint replacement, Pages, a word processor, and Numbers, a spreadsheet application, the iWork suite has been referred to as Apple’s competitor to Microsoft Office. Each of the new iPad-specific applications offers a multi-touch interface, the ability to add media stored on the iPad, and, in Numbers, user-switchable keyboards tailored to one specific task or another. The iPad versions of Keynote, Pages, and Numbers will be available separately through the App Store for $10 each. More photos showing the apps in action are available on our Flickr photostream.

I’m sure it is designed to work with iWork ‘09, the current version.

What is the point of including iWork when the iPad is held back but the cumbersome touch-screen keyboard?  I wish they had redesigned the touch-screen keyboard to at least include the traditional top row of keys (the numbers and punctuation marks).  This omission is particularly difficult when typing in passwords which are, of course, alpha-numeric.  (Type a few letters, switch the numbers, type a few numbere, repeat, repeat, repeat.)

Yes, there is the wireless Bluetooth option ... but how muchwill that be?  Plus the “stand” to prop up the iPad?  The more you think about it, eventually this will cost as much as a MacBook.
