Default MS Word, PDF...Which BlackBerry is best?

Please Login to Remove!

I have been able to open Word, Excel and PDF files since I've had my 7290. I have an 8700g now. It opens these files just fine.
My question is: Which is better at handling these file types...8700g, Curve, or the 8800??? Or are they pretty much the same?
Meaning...is there any type of file restrictions such as the size of the file (which I'm sure a 200mb PDF might have some trouble). I know that some PDFs may not open on a BB just because of the nature of PDFs.
Thanks for your help in answering my questions.

Document handling will be the same on all of those BlackBerry models. (There's also no 8770... I assume you meant 8700.)

I use BeamBerry to view more complex documents, and PDFs, and it has worked well. I advise the same.

BeamBerry does work pretty well on my 8830 personally.

The 88??, 83?? and 81?? phones run the same software and have similar capabilities. So there really is no choosing which one is better for viewing documents. As far as software, personally I suggest Repligo. I have used both Repligo and BeamBerry, and personally I think Repligo is superior. It is not only faster, but has an AWESOME "read" mode, which will word wrap the lettering in word documents so that you can easily read it, while preserving some other formatting. With BeamBerry, it is just a matter of zooming .. scrolling left and right.

Size matters.

It's only a matter of screen size.

Thanks. I have heard of these services. I'm mostly worried about e-mails with attachments from a large client. I assumed that all models handled attachments the same...but thought I would ask.

Thanks.

Dataviz: PDA Software - Palm OS Software, Windows Mobile Software, Windows Smartphone Software, Symbian UIQ Software, Symbian Series 60 Software, Symbian Series 80 Software, Java MIDP 2.0 Software - Developed By DataViz is supposed to be releasing sometime soon a Blackberry version of the "Documents To Go" software they already have for Palm (and, I believe, for Windows Mobile). It allows editing of MS Office documents.

Yep, DataViz has been on the ready for quite a while, I wish they would bring it on.

Agreed. Although, as more people download the latest version, the issue is what will that do to the efficiency.
