    Given that there will be iWork apps available in the iPad, where will the documents be stored? Just curious how they were going to do this... Since they really don't open up the storage on the device (at least the iPhone, anyway) I'm curious as to where these docs will be stored and how they will be accessed and/or loaded in the first place.

    i'm sure you'll have to open the app, and a menu will pop up with templates and perhaps a recent projects/recent documents button, there you will find your files.

    I'm going to guess that the iPad can act as a file server. You type in the iPad's ip address in your address bar and there you'll find all your files. The iPhone works this way with a couple apps.

    Loosely related query (possibly very loosely, at that..) but will the iPad enable users to save images from the internet, say, from Google images, to insert and load into iWork applications?

    My understanding from watching and hearing stuff about iWork for iPad so far is that you can do this with images that are already on the iPad from iPhoto etc, but does anyone know if you can save images from the web as and when necessary to use in the same way?

    Any images you save from Safari are viewable in the Photos app in an album called, "Saved Photos." I'm sure all your images from the Photos app are accessible via the iPad's iWorks a-la-carte suite...

    This appears to show a selected album's photos accessible from Keynote.

    So you create a Pages document and don't immediately have access to a computer. How do you "save" the document? Same as your normally would? Can you have multiple documents on there at one time? What if you don't have Pages on your computer? will you be able to open and print the document?
