Downloading directly onto the iLiad from the web?

Hello! I'm debating right now whether to get the Kindle or the iLiad... was wondering if anybody could answer my question.

Using either the built-in web browser, or one of the ported ones, is it possible to download and then read pdfs (or other ebook formats) directly on the iLiad, without going through the PC?

If you are buying a device to read PDFs, get the iLiad.

If you are buying the device to read book-seller-retail books, get the Sony or the Kindle
