Question Can't you already view PDF files on the Storm?

Please Login to Remove!

I am able to view PDF files on my Storm already - standard OS, no special programs. Why are companies like DataViz pushing paid products to view PDF files? Is there some "better" way to view them?

Thanks!


*** UPDATE ***

Ok, apparently I can view PDF's when I do so right from an email. However, from a file on my BB, nope. What an odd situation.

The PDF is viewed from an email attachment via the BlackBerry Attachment Service. That doesn't work from the Media Card. Neither would viewing Word or Excel documents IF DataViz didn't give us the free standard DocsToGo.

I bought the pro. I am in advertising and right now I have 35 PDF's on my Storm. Great stuff.
