    I want to use the ipod touch primarily as a PDA. Would like to have 200 or 300 songs, maybe a movie or tv show or 2 and then want to have access to a number of pdfs, spreadsheet, to do list, calendar contact manager etc. Do the apps take up a lot of space?

    Do you think 8g is enough capacity?

    You cannot make spreadsheets or text documents (beyond Notes, of course. I wrote an entire AP English paper in Notes when our school computers were broken...) on the iPod touch or iPhone. Take this into consideration.

    You can only view them. You cannot create either a pdf or spreadsheet.

    Notes is a great way to capture text. Then just e-mail it to yourself to copy and paste into Word for example.

    As for the OPs question, I think that I would go with a 16GB model.

    There is an App called Mobile Finder(1.99 in the App Store)

    It lets you use the iPhone as a disk(so you can move files to and from your computer), and you can create/edit text documents on it. Its nice. Worth 1.99 for me. It syncs up wirelessly to

    There's also the #1 free app right now, "air sharing." Get it while you can, it won't be free forever.

    Good to know. He asked about access, so I assume he just wanted to view.

    Is there ability to see spreadsheets? What file formats? Anyone know?

    Ya, I heard about this one!

    I don't have a Touch yet, but I downloaded it for free. Does this mean once I get a Touch, and the app might cost by then, can I still use it even when I downloaded it for free?

    Also, once it starts to cost money, will updates for the app cost as well? Or would you get free updates?
