When Apple CEO Steve Jobs took the stage at WWDC today, he suggested that there were a hundred new features in the iPhone 4 and that he would only focus on 8 of the bigger ones. Sure, he talked about more than 8 things, introducing a few new apps, when talking about the operating system, for example. One app he didn’t mention was iWork. But that doesn’t mean it’s not coming to the iPhone. In fact, there’s some evidence that it might be doing just that.

Apple introduced a touchscreen-friendly version of the iWork office suite when the company launched the iPad a few months ago. Now it looks like there may be a new version scaled down for the iPhone’s 3.5 inch display.

As the folks at TUAW and MacRumors have noticed, if you look at the Apple press shot for Mail on the iPhone 4 features page, you’ll see a screenshot indivating that you can open a presentation file in Keynote. That would certainly seem to imply that Keynote and other iWork apps will be available for the iPhone 4.

If that’s true, I imagine the app will also be available for the iPhone 3G, 3GS, and iPod touch, since all three will be upgradeable to iOS 4 come June 21st.
