All according to what is allowed via your IT Policy. They vary from Admin to Admin.

Most likely, all that you can do.

Check our Aftermarket Software section for some e-book readers.

IT policies are quite granular. There's no one-size-fits-all IT policy. Our IT policy doesn't restrict anything, for example.

Slip in a microSD media card and drag and drop mp3's to it. Once the card is inserted, it's just like a thumb drive if you enable mass storage mode.
