Research In Motion
ORLANDO, FL- Wireless Enterprise Symposium 2008 -- Cerience Corporation today announced RepliGo™ Reader, the first native PDF viewing application for BlackBerry® smartphones from Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM) (TSX: RIM). RepliGo Reader offers desktop-like viewing of native PDF files that are stored on the handset or downloaded, allowing users to read documents on their BlackBerry smartphone even when wireless coverage is not available. A preview version of RepliGo Reader will be demonstrated at booth #601 during the Wireless Enterprise Symposium 2008. |
RepliGo Reader is the latest addition to the award-winning RepliGo product line which includes RepliGo Server for enterprises and RepliGo Professional for consumers. Cerience has leveraged several of its key technologies into the product in order to increase usability, including on-device document recognition, which reformats pages for fast and easy reading on a small screen. The application also integrates with the upcoming features of the BlackBerry® wireless platform, allowing native PDF email attachments to be downloaded and viewed at the user's convenience.
"PDF is the defacto standard for distributing information and is overwhelmingly the most popular format with our customers," said Dave Formanek, Vice President of Product Development at Cerience. "RepliGo Reader is a great complement to our product line. For the first time ever, users can take native PDF documents with them on their BlackBerry smartphone and read them wherever they travel."
Pricing and Availability
RepliGo Reader is currently in beta and available on an invitation-only basis. Those interested in participating in the beta can sign up at RepliGo Reader for BlackBerry - Native PDF Viewing - Beta. The product is expected to release in the third quarter of 2008. Pricing has not been determined.
