Exactly Mike. I have a Motorola Razr and just about everyone's website is
available from there (actually have not run across anyone yet that isn't).
But obviously that screen is not very big. I can and have been able to for
YEARS, get PDF's on my Palm (with Color) which I don't even use anymore.
So any of the smart phones should be able to do what you note, now.

With a USB port you could have them saved to a USB memory stick and readable
via that.

I see the potential for this device but the first gen is just that. Imagine
getting a small SD memory stick with ALL of the IBM manuals on it for your
system. You could search through quickly and find what you need right at the
console or while on the road. To do this though they NEED PDF support and
they need to drop the price by at least $200 and drop the price of the books
by about $5. I like the idea of getting your newspaper on the device daily
and getting your magazines on there as well. Give it about 2 years and I
would think it can be a great device. But by then the iPod Touch and iPhone
will be there as well, only smaller.
