    Is it possible to view .pdf files through a different program than adobe reader? I want to look at the manual, but I don't want to spend money.

    *EDIT*

    Nevermind...

    Turns out I was trying to open it with Adobe Acrobat instead of Adobe Reader. Stupid me!

    Does the screen really have multi-touch, as some info suggests? Is it used like on the iPhone, where you can zoom with two fingers?

    It does have multi-touch, but it does not seem to have the pinch zoom gesture. Instead it looks like you double tap where you want to zoom in.
