    If I am currently connected to the internet via wi-fi and am viewing a webpage on the iPhone, can I save that webpage to the hard-drive to view at a later time when I do not have access to wi-fi?

    Thank you.

    wasnt aware of the iphone having a hard drive, if it did it would be sweet, im sure an 80GB 1.8" drive would be ok even if the iphone was a little larger

    So, is the 4 GB or 8 GB storage only to be used for music/video? We can't save webpages for later viewing?

    No one knows if you can manually save a site to the flash. Seems doubtful. Apple doesn't seem to want to position this as a real PDA, but more of a smart phone.

    Apparently you can have up to 8 pages open at one time. (See the latest demos at apple.com, for example.) So in theory you should be able to open a site, then open another browser window to continue elsewhere... saving the original for later viewing.

    Of course, the website should make sure the caching headers are set correctly.

    I don't have an iPhone yet. My question was simply hypothetical. As a commuter, I'd love to be able to save webpages for viewing on the vanpool.

    Thank you. Apparently, this is a feature that has not been confirmed yet, which may be why my search turned up no results.

    Not if you read it as a hypothetical question, which is what it is worded as.

    Edit: Strange, the post I was replying to vanished

    Key word of my original post being IF. I intended the question as a hypothetical. Sorry if I came off claiming that I had one. If I did have one, I obviously could have found out the answer for myself.

    I certainly hope so ;)

    It will be nice once this thing gets released and we can go back to obsessing over the HR20 again, right KCWolfPck? ;)
