    Default iWork Coming to iPhone?


    Apple either accidentally let a fairly large cat out of a bag today or made some sort of bizarre graphic mistake. As noted by the eagle-eyed Stuart Miles at Pocket-lint.com, an image on the US iTunes 4 web pages showed an "Open in Keynote" option for an email attachment. Keynote and the rest of the iWork suite are currently only available on iPad. The graphic has since been changed to show an incredibly lame "Open in iBooks" option (really, Apple? really?) which leaves more questions than it answers.

    The iPhone's small screen and virtual keyboard would be pretty inconvenient to do much serious work. However, for minor document updates while away from a computer, and the ability to quickly check Word/Pages or PowerPoint/Keynote files on the go, this would be incredibly powerful for enterprise users, which is a market Apple says it wants.

    It makes more sense that Apple thought they might be able to announce iWork for iPhone at WWDC, hit a snag at the last minute, and forgot to clean up all the graphics than that they really thought that people would be doing presentations in ePub format and emailing them around. But hey, maybe that's just me...

    iWork would be fantastic for times when I found myself in bed with still having to write a paper. I used to do it all the time back in my windows mobile days

    You know, with the iBooks coming to the iPhone now and if this happens, then why buy an iPad? (I mean I have my reasons but to the average consumer looking at features this will make the iPad look the same as the iPhone).

    i hope not, it would be so dumb to type on that thing, the screen is to small...

    yeah, and it would suck to not leave some exclusives for the larger, more expensive iPad. If Jobs really wants the iPad to be magical, he's got to stop giving all it's stuff to the ipod and iphone. Otherwise it will truly be no more than a large ipod.
    Really?

    That would be great with the,
    "Wireless keyboard support
    Pair a keyboard based on Bluetooth wireless technology with your iPhone."

    Pair a Bluetooth keyboard with a video out to a tv screen. You got yourself a sweet word processor and more.

    But to be able to look over and do some lite editing on a report, paper, chart, etc. while on the bus/train/plane would be quite handy. Frankly typing a full fledged paper on anything but a true keyboard is less than ideal.

    At that point I would rather just, I don't know, use a real computer.

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.
