Angry PDF's -- Is there ANY way to view a pdf?

Please Login to Remove!

According to RIM, the BB can NOT view a PDF if it has "embedded" graphics! Which means, basically, you can only view a pdf with plain text.
If, for example, you have letterhead with a logo on it... and you make a pdf of it... you won't be able to see it on your blackberry!
And one of the reasons I bought this thing was so that I could see pdfs.
Does anyone know how to view a REAL pdf? Or 3rd party software that will help?
Thanks.

I just looked at a PDF on my 8700c that had graphics. Maybe it is working because my company has a 4.0.3 BES server?
