Admiral: Can I view PDF files?

was wondering if there is a way to read PDF files on the admiral? i've tried alot of apps to do this with but nothing works. i need to read them because of my job, and i dont want to carry a laptop if i can avoid it( composing, reading, sending, and opening PDF files... please help??


 


P.S all it says when i try to open one is" the document cannot be opened because it is not a valid PDF file"

Stab in the dark b/c I don't have an Admiral....


Can you use Adobe Reader (here:  https://market.android.com/details?id=com.adobe.reader&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNv...) on your device?


I think you would have to download the PDF file (not read it from within your email app) and then open the file using PDF Reader.

Thanks for giving so many useful links. But it seems that there is little information on the PDF reading for admiral.

Re: Admiral: Can I view PDF files?

Normally apps like QuickOffice will allow you to view PDF file. Is there anything special about the files you are trying to view? Are they smart PDF files? What is the actual extension?

Thanks,
