    Forgive me. I'm just a bit pumped because I managed to get the iPod to read my corporate email (Exchange) and download and read an attached PDF document.

    For me, that's cooler than cool.

    I was wondering how it handles, if it handles, PDF.

    This is great news!
    So can one resize and zoom in on the document PDF with ease?
    DO TELL.

    Yeah. PDFs are fine (I didn't have to install any special App, it just works).

    Zooms and scrolls just the same way as Safari pages do. There's some slight lag as it pages memory, but it's perfectly useable and readable.

    It downloaded fairly fast from the Exchange server as well.

    Hot damn.

    It gets better and better. Mine arrives Tuesday, so I haven't been able to fully explore the iPT yet. This device seems like a giant sized baby step toward a fully capable web/information/communication device that is essentially a mini-me Mac.

    It gets better. Excel files look great (I don't know about multi-worksheet files yet though). I imagine that Word documents would work ok as well.

    Update:

    The Touch has native support for docx format Word documents (I expect Excel also).
    Multi-worksheet Excel files are also fine (you get tabs at the top of the screen you can tap to get to the other worksheets.
    PowerPoint files can also be read.
