What good is an iPad without software? At the Apple launch event, Steve Jobs just announced the coming of a new iWork suite. This iteration of iWork has been totally redesigned for use with a tablet PC.

At the Gizmodo live-blog you can see some images of the various apps in use. Making slide presentations looks much easier now, and most every app will respond to simple tap-and-drag instructions. Pages looks fantastic now, you can create automatic page outlines and then drag in text and images to fill them out. That should make putting together detailed, attractive documents with embedded images and video much easier.

Numbers looks much better too. Everything is organized in file folders, which should make swipe selecting different windows very intuitive. All of the iWork apps we've seen have a very attractive, eye-friendly design. The keyboard seems to be spacious, and all of the buttons are spaced far enough apart that I could realistically see businessmen using this device for all of their travel computing. There's even a specific data-entry keyboard for spreadsheets (pictured above).

The price for each of these iWork applications? $9.99, downloaded right from Apple. That means the average student should be able to get everything he needs for class (Pages and Keynote) for $20. Update:
Apple iPad is official and starts at $499.
