PDF Viewer

Here is a PDF attachment to an e-mail, being previewed through the Mail application. Notice, in the upper right, the Open button; it's greyed out in this instance, but if you wanted to see, for instance, a Word document, an Excel spreadsheet, or a PowerPoint file, you could preview the file first and then click the Open button to open the document in Apple's new iWork for iPad apps (Pages, Numbers, or Keynote, respectively).

Apple demonstrators did not directly answer a query about how those apps would work if your document was stored in the cloud (for example, in Web-based e-mail or storage) but you wanted to edit the document on the iPad. Unfortunately, the unit has no logical file system, so you can't just save and open files as you would on a laptop.
