Question eOffice vs. Docs to Go or something better?

Please Login to Remove!

I need an application that can at least read the most common filetypes such as Office files, PDF.
I've just tried Beamberry and came to find out that they actually just upload and convert it into a displayable format, but no native reader.

What would you recommend? I've heard about Docs to Go Premium, and eOffice (with a nice introduction price), can anybody give me his opinion or even recommend something better? I want a software that can be used offline as well and no returning costs.

Thanks in advance

You show you are using OS version 4.5.0.81 which has documents to go. If you just want to read you don't need premium.

True Docs to Go does not have a PDF solution, I don't think they do for any platform.

I might go for eOfffice since they have 50% introduction price. If it's just for the sake of pdf reading. Still way cheaper than DtG and apparently capable to create/edit as well...
Just wondering that there's no real solution for BB, comparing to eg. Symbian that delivers such features by default. (Don't wanna get into a debate BB vs. the rest )
