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.
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.
