I have tried emailing docx, ppts and xls files to myself; making them into google docs (kinda works with lots of extra effort). iWork just does a poor job and I can't edit any of them. Most the time the iPad just chokes. I'm a college teacher and get a constant stream of ms office formated files to open, change resend .. for this the iPad is very frustrating. If this is going to be a real working device it needs to handle standard file types .. my android phone can. Can anyone enlighten me in what they have found?
