I too just picked up an iPad2. I've been wanting one for quite a while. This is my first Apple product, other than an iPod. I'm a long time PCM user and use Microsoft Office application products, and to be honest I'm experiencing a little buyer's remose. I purchased a Bluetooth keyboard a few days ago. Now I just want to find some apps that can function similar to Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. I need to be able to take note, compose papers, letters, spreadsheets, and prepare presentations. Open and looking for suggestions.

Pages, Numbers and Keynote are the official offerings from Apple, and are file compatible with MS Office.
