From email attachment, or from web page? You should be able to open pdf email attachment with no problem; but pdf's cannot be downloaded and opened from web pages. Depending on your needs, you may want to look at aftermarket software. I'll defer to others on that.

You should be able to either able to highlight the link, bring up the menu, and select send link address, or hightlight the link and use a keyboard shortcut to bring up the link address and select send link.

For what it is worth, on my 8700 the keyboard shortcut is L. (P is page.)

My 8700c views pdf's as email attachments... just highlight "attachment" in the email then Open Attachment... Kind of grainy but depends on the resolution of the original I guess... Never tired viewing one from an online source yet...

Then, on the 8700, you will have to do without.

Yes, routine files like word docs, xls spreadsheets, pdf files, etc., and videos.

There are many threads here detailing the upgraded OS 4.5.

I don't know the percentages. No idea.

If you follow the instructions exactly as posted, it is unlikely.

But the 8700 STILL does not have a media card, so you can go throwing a bunch of file in the device memory anyway.
