ThinkSecret has posted some additional spoilers in advance of next week’s Macworld Expo in San Francisco. According to TS, Apple will use the Expo to launch a new productivity suite called iWork, that will include an updated version of Keynote (v.2) and a new application called “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.”

MacMinute adds fuel to the fire with a story about a software company that recently changed the name of their application from iWork to iBiz.

It is not known whether IGG was forced to change the name of its software by Apple, or whether it simply believes the speculation and wants to differentiate its software in advance.

Hmmm…
