    Quickoffice Files seems to be what you are looking for, but it's not free.

    EDIT: It seems to not work with iWork '09 either ...

    I use iWork'08 and i see the following.

    If I open the file through email, it does not open correctly.

    But if I use one of the disk storage apps like Air Sharing, AirDisk or Discover, a weird bug appears. The pages file is decompressed and the actual file appears as an image. This is infrequent because sometimes the app displays the file correctly. At other times, it is this.

    Thanks a lot guys. However it is really strange that iphone an apple product will support Microsoft documents and not its own!
