well the one that comes with the device called the blackberry attachment viewer allows you to view pdf files. Are you looking for something in addition to this?

it comes from the way the pdf was originally saved. in some cases, the bb will deal with it as an image, hence the blur, in other cases it will be able to pick up the text. Comes from the way the original pdf file was created.

And sometimes, if you wait, the blurry image may clear.

If the PDF was created from a JPG image, often the blur does not clear.

Otherwise, a PDF created with text, etc., not just an image, it will clear after a few seconds after zooming.
