"iPad question No. 1: Can you save and transfer documents to the
iPad? Anyone who uses an iPhone or iPod Touch with an office
productivity app such as Quickoffice knows how frustrating it is to
access Office documents. You have to set up a wireless connection
over a local Wi-Fi network, enter the IP address, and transfer the
files, or you send the document via email on an Exchange account so
that it can be opened as an attachment.
"Apple says its "no save" restriction is meant to prevent
malware from being placed on the iPhone or iPod Touch. I've never
bought that argument, as the iPhone and iPod Touch allow you to
save images to what is essentially a folder and sync those images
via iTunes -- so why not other file types? Of course, that may be a
loophole Apple is closing: The iPad's Photos app (a photo gallery),
like the iWork for iPad app, appears to do away with saved photo
files altogether, instead embedding them into the app itself."
