Apple really announced a lot of new products today at MacWorld Expo - this article is already the fifth about Apple today.

Anyway Steve Jobs announced that Apple is turning its old AppleWorks into a new product dubed iWork. It will feature a new version of Keynote , Apple's presentation program. It will also feature more themes etc. Jobs also mentioned that his whole keynote was prepared in Apple Keynote.

Another program in the iWork bundle is Pages, a word processor with a sense of style, according to Apple. Pages includes pretty templates, and seems to aim on design-intensive documents.

PC World says that Pages doesn't look like Microsoft Word, but that it's surely a competitor. Other applications like a spreadsheet are not included in iWork.

The program costs $79 and will be launched on January 22nd.
