    Easiest way is to just email it or you can transfer it via USB.

    Lot of options to do this!

    1) You can use USB mode and move the file over.

    2) You can also upload the file to your Box.net account and then download it to your TP. If you do that you will want to check and make sure the file downloaded correctly--you may need to add the correct file extension once it is on your TP.

    3) If you have Gemini File Manager ($2.99 in the HP app catalog) and you have uploaded the file to Box.net, you can use the Network option in Gemini and transfer the file from your Box.net account to your TP (no worries about the file extension being correct).

    4) You can install TBtransfer or WiFi TouchPad File Browser/Uploader and copy the file from your computer to the TP wirelessly. Both of those programs are found in Preware.

    TBtransfer allows you to copy files back and forth between your computer and the TP; you also need to install a small file on your computer so the computer can "talk" to the TP.

    You don't need an additional file for WiFi TP File Browser/Uploader--just the internet. You can use WiFi TP File Browser/Uploader to copy files from a computer to your TP; you can also delete files from your TP using this app.

    I use both TBtransfer and WiFi TP and they both work well.

    5) You could email the file to yourself and download the attachment (again, you may have to check the file to make sure the download has the right extension before you try to open it).

    Whatever method you choose, once the file is on the TP, you can open it from QuickOffice or from Adobe.

    Hope that helps.

    I find that the easiest method is to install Dropbox on your PC and keep the PDFs you read in your Dropbox folders.

    You can then add your Dropbox account to your Touchpad and open the PDFs directly from Adobe Reader or within QuickOffice without having to do any manual copying at all. (You'll need a wifi connection, but if you're going to need to read offline you could then copy the PDF from DropBox to your Touchpad.)

    If you've not installed DropBox, we can both get a free extra 250 MB of space if you use this referral link:

    You can use DropBox,, or Google Docs, or other options to read the document online.

    If OP wants to transfer the file to the TP as he indicated, then he has to copy/move the file to the TP at some point. So, creating another online account that allows you to copy the file to your TouchPad is another option...the nice thing about DropBox is that you can also access it through the Network option in Gemini File Manager just like Box.net.

    If you don't like the quality of pdfs viewed with the standard QuickOffice/Adobe viewer, check out the WebOS Patches forum for the latest patch to greatly improve the pdf viewer.

    I'm not sure if the TP pdf viewer handles password-protected pdfs. Has anyone tried it?
