Yes. Under Settings it shows the wireless networks it has found. You simply select the one you wish to connect to and enter the key. It'll connect automatically whenever that network is available, as long as you don't turn WiFi off.

On a long car trip (I've taken a few with an iPod!), as you suggested, you only 'get what you've got': only songs, videos, apps + app data that you've already loaded are accessible until you sync again.

It's essentially an iPhone minus the phone stack. You *can* simulate such via Skype when you're on WiFi, but YMMV.

So, I suppose it has a function like Windows "Search networks" for
wireless connections? Then you connect (providing you have a log in to
that wireless network)? And if you're in the car on a long trip it only
plays what you've previously loaded in (at least until you hit the next
wifi cafe)?
