Where does the iPad2, or for that matter, the iPhone4, store files (such as PDF) when they are downloaded to either device from a website?

iPad 2, iOS 4.3.2

    Open the iBooks window. In the top menu, click on Collections. A window will open where you can select Books or PDFs. The selected type of files will then be displayed in the bookcase.

    The iPad doesn't use a file system like a computer.  Each app stores its own data files.  If you send a PDF file from a computer, or download it from Dropbox (or other locations), the file always goes to one app on the iPad.  That app then stores it "within itself".  If you open an app, select a file, then "open in" some other app, than a copy of the file is sent to the second app which also stores is within itself.
