    Pretty much the title. If the iPad cant, however, would be rather disappointing imo...

    Nope. There are rumors, though, that 4.0 will allow downloads.

    Hang in there and see what happens.

    I've got an app on iPhone which is basically a download manager, it has built in browser or you add bookmark to safari and it send the current page to the app and you can download stuff

    I know it can download pdf files like the iphone, but if you had iwork, don't you think it would be able to download those files too?

    Such a hassle. Maybe a jailbreak will actually give it some functionality.

    When you download a file li,e a PDF, where does it go and can you bring it up again or do you need an app to see it again.

    Many files can be viewed within safari. I've only had my iPad for a little while now, but i've already successfully loaded .doc, .PDF, .mp3 and other files within safari

    PS typed this on my iPad!!!
