    , it is possible to read pdf documents from the ipod touch?
    I can use it like a pen-drive, to store my information?

    Thanks!

    unless the ipod has the same type of address typing as the psp where you can direct the web browser to read say a TXT file on the memory stick by typing "file:\" before the location of the file, although that would be kind of hard seeing you dont know the exact location of the pdf file seeing you dont have access to disk mode on the ipod touch.

    The touch could read PDFs, try to put your PDF in the photo library, and sync with your touch. Then it will show up on preview.

    you can't do the file:// thing. it tells you that it's a local file.
    you can't ftp stuff because it says you can't download things.
    if you want to access pdfs, i think you have to have web access. I can easily open pdfs from within gmail, etc.
    you can open .doc files (again, i opened it from a gmail attachment.)
    it's mad frustrating since you should be able to do so much cool ish with this thing.
