    Inadequate native PDF viewer/reader is a major weakness

    Not having a decent native PDF viewer/reader is a MAJOR weakness in the BB 8100 Pearl software suite. Using software that can use a pdf only as an email attachment that must upload the file to another server for processing is a big usability-functionality hit bordering on the ridiculous.

    So basically you gotta pay to play the PDF game, right? No semi-easy workaround or freeware solution?

    I'm with busterkat, I've tried DocHawk, and you're basically recieving snapshots of the pages, and roughly compressed ones at that. Does anyone know if work is being done toward a real adobe-style pdf reader, or a powerpoint viewer? How hard could that be? I for one would pay for such software, especially if it was a one-time buy and not a subspcription service.

    I could not agree more. For me, this might be a deal breaker. And I was just falling in love with me little Pearl. So laaaaaaame. I might have to settle for a Windows Mobile device ... the horror.

    i agree. this is what i use. very easy to use, and they show the whole pdf file with options to zoom in on what you want to see and all. it's free too.

    It supports PDF, Words, PPT, XLS, RTF, Zip and a couple others. VERY NICE!!

    I think PDF file is a little big, you should change it to PDC file (which can be read by MobileReader). You can install MobileReader to 8100 and read the PDC files , as I know MobileReader is free to download!
