I think the present Storm implementation involves going through their Server to open pdf files, at least the first time. I just checked a rather large pdf file I had emailed to myself last month. On my PC, this file is about 2 Mb. I just reopened it after almost a month of Storm abuse - it opened almost instantaneously ! My experience with this scrolling pdf file (a nuclear well log) has been tremendous: zoom, pan and scroll are totally awesome.
Since this file opened so fast, it tends to support the idea that it is in fact on my Storm.
So why all the grief when I try to drag and drop it onto my Storm directly from by PC ? ("You will not be able to view this file"?) I'm guessing this means that it will need to pass through the BB server for cracking/formatting. Does anyone really know what gives here ? These pdf files are critical to any student or business person and a clearer picture of how these files are dealt with would help a lot - same for .doc and .xls files.
