Hmmm I dont have any problems downloading PDF's. I just click the link to download, then go to the "download" icon located in your apps and there it is.

Odd, I seem to think the stock browsers on both of those devices are fantastic. To each there own I guess...

I've been using Firefox Mobile on the Xoom, and for the most part it's been pretty excellent.

Default PDF on Xoom

Aloha,
Just got my Xoom a couple of weeks ago. Still going through the 70 page owners manual. Does anyone know how to open mutliple PDF's on the Xoom. I have several saved as lyric files and need to have as many as 5 opened at once and then be able to swipe to the next as we do our worship. Mahalo for any help or direction.
