    I haven't yet taken the plunge on buying a Touchpad because I need to know if I can (A) view PDF's, and (B) is there is software/apps that allow me to mark (highlight) text in PDF. I use PDF Exchange software to do this on my laptop. Can anyone advise? Thanks!!

    There are a couple in development at the moment, but nothing available for markup

    Reading is no problem, especially if you use smart office.. Adobe reader come on the touchpad but its "ok" for casual PDF reading

    Yeah, you can view pdfs on the TP, but you can't d/l them in the browser (unrecognized mime type error).

    The current* situation is that you will have to dual-boot it with android to get that functionality (annotation rather than simply reading) - I use ez-pdf for that reason - however you then get into the issues of problems of installing alpha software which a lot of people might not be comfortable with.




    * unless this has changed since I last checked?
