Don’t get too excited about the example video just yet, but do know that Google plans to roll out creating and editing features in Google Docs for iOS (and Android, of course) over the next few days. They don’t mention the iPhone specifically, but these features will be supported on all iOS 3.x devices.
I’m not a big Google Docs user at the moment, but I have to admit: Google web apps are really kicking ass lately. If Safari could only learn to treat web apps with a bit more respect (using a homescreen icon at present to “load” a web app will end up refreshing the page or creating multiple tabs of the same web app within Safari), I could see them as a viable (and more affordable) alternative to native apps on iOS.
