Putting Project Gutenberg books on Kobo

I am thinking of buying one of these but I want to know if it is easy to plug this in as an external device and transfer free classics from PG on to it. I know it is easy on my current Kindle 3 but I do not know if this device is locked down or not?

Cheers!

The Kobo TABLET is an Android device and with the exception of rooting it you do just about anything you want. It appears to a PC as an MTP device and you can then copy what you want to it or install items from Google's Play Store. You can also use calibre and Calibre Companion to sync via wireless.

If you are referring to the eink devices when attached to a PC they appear as a disc drive and you can copy ePubs or PDFs to it, or use calibre to automate the process.
