    As far as I know the only way to view these files is to buy the iPad version of the iWork apps when they come out @ $9.99 a piece. Pages, Keynote and Numbers can view and export to Microsoft file types.

    If you want to just view those files, you can email them to yourself. There are also a few third-party iPhone apps that lets you edit them, including QuickOffice and Documents To Go. So you are not just limited to iWorks, though right now iWorks looks like the slickest implementation.

    You can view & edit these files with Docs To Go. The iPhone versions are $10 and $14. The $14 version will edit powerpoint and google docs.

    If you just want to view, and some basic editing, wait till Office 2010 for Web comes out. It'll be free and probably will work via Safari on iPad.

    If I get the VGA connector, will I be able to do a keynote presentation from the iPad?

    Some devices limit what resolution they can output over VGA. You might want to double check that spec before assuming your presentations will be the best they can be. The screen is 1024h x 768w. I think the VGA port outputs 768h x 1024w. Remember to format your slide shows in landscape orientaton just to make sure they'll project the same.
