    Thumbs up Free PDF attachment viewer for Blackberry !!!

    Advertisement



    For all of us that have desperately wanted a PDF viewer on their BB and didn't want to pay for the Premium version of Docs To GO or Beamberry...

    I have finally found one !!!

    Mobipocket ebook reader is our salvation...

    Supports practically every blackberry model out there... OS 3.7 and above (doesn't work on the really REALLY old ones)...

    The version for Bold and Storm are in BETA... I've got a Bold and have been trying it out for ebooks for a while, never realizing that it can open any of my PDF attachments in emails as well...

    It works for other smartphones too... Check the link below and maybe you can use it on your other non blackberry smartphone as well...

    Here's the link... http://www.mobipocket.com/mobile/dow...ft/default.asp

    Pick your berry and OTA... !!!

    Good luck, have fun... ENJOY !!!

    Just one question: do you know that you don't need a 3rd party program to open an attached *.pdf?

    For me it works w/o.

    Some bbs like my 8700 from tmo came with a beamberry pdf viewer. Most don't. My bold couldn't on its own as it uses docs to go which doesn't support pdf without the premium edition.

    What device n what os do you have?

    Hmmm... It works with every BB I previous used.
    Pls check if you have the BlackBerry Attachement Service is installed.

    Yup, I do...

    So if the bb attachment service does that, then what's the point of having docs to go premium for pdf?

    To have a native pdf-viewer. But i guess that's not worth to buy the premium edition.
