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.
