Free iWork apps

So at today's event Tim Cook announced that the five iWork apps are now free. The apps are Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iMovie and iPhoto. They said when you buy a new iOS device the apps are free. So what I want to know is what about existing apps? I would assume that the apps are just free period. However looking in the app store they aren't free yet. So will it just take time? or is there another view of what this might mean?

Only new devices....

"The suite' is now free on all new iOS devices and now includes iMovie and iPhoto. When you upgrade to iOS 7 you will be presented with a screen that lets you download these apps. These features will be included with any new iPad, iPhone, or 5th generation iPod Touch."
