Apple to release office suite iWorks 2005
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 1/01/2005 11:10:00 AM.

Apple will launch its new iWork '05 productivity suite at Macworld Expo.

The software, code-named Sugar (as alluded to in our previous Expo report), will include Keynote 2 as well as a new application, Pages.

It's unclear whether Pages will simply encompass a word processing application or whether Apple will wrap spreadsheet functionality into it as well. Apple's new word processing software had been rumored to be called Document, but sources say it appears that name has been abandoned, possibly due to the confusion a user might encounter when being told "this document is a Document document."

Chatter surrounding iWork--then called iWorks, as it was speculated to be the successor to AppleWorks--first emerged almost two years ago. Since then, iWork has become a perennial rumor favorite, as AppleWorks 6 continues to show its age and lack of refinement associated with Apple's applications today. Steve Jobs introduced AppleWorks 6 during Macworld Expo San Francisco in 2000, making the application a dinosaur in software years by today's standards.

iWork '05 will require a 500MHz system and Mac OS X 10.3.6 , sources say. Additionally, the software will require a serial number. It's unclear whether the new iLife '05 will also require a serial number--previous versions have not. Also unknown is where iWork '05 pricing will fall. With Keynote currently selling for $99 and AppleWorks 6 costing $79, it seems unlikely that Apple will price iWork '05 at the same $49 price point as iLife.

What is almost certain, however, is that iWork will come bundled with most, if not all, of Apple's new systems, including the new $500 headless iMac. Such a move will enable Apple to market the affordable system as being ready-to-go out of the box with all the software most needed by users, including PC switchers.
