Upgrading to rapid fire shifter. verify?

I just purchased a Specialized Myka HT. http://www.specialized.com/bc/SBCBkModel.jsp?spid=33054
I want to upgrade to Rapid fire shifters so I bought these, which are the same ones as the ones on the Specialized Myka HT Sport.

Can someone verify that this will work correctly?
I shouldn't have to change cables or anything else will I?

Thanks in advance.

Yeah, they'll work. You'll need to remove the old cables to use them in the new shifters...unless they some with new ones...? You'll also need to move the brake cables, as well...
