Both Tom & BeamBerry let me know that they have a new application in free beta testing. BeamBerry is working on BeamBerry which is a native PDF application for BlackBerry. This will be in direct competition with the RepliGo Reader PDF viewer that is in private beta currently.
Check out the features below or pick up a copy of the public beta at this link.
Displays Original PDF Fonts
Unlike other solutions that use substitute fonts, BeamReader displays all original PDF fonts. This makes the PDF document look exactly as it would on a regular PC. All of the original fonts, images and formatting is preserved. Take a look at the difference display of original fonts makes!
Fully Native and Secure Solution
BeamReader does not require any server side pre-processing to display the PDF documents. All document rendering is completely local to the BlackBerry device. This also makes BeamReader a secure PDF reader because your PDF documents never leave your BlackBerry device for server side conversion.
No Data Plan or Network Connectivity Required
Since BeamReader is a native PDF viewing solution, you do not need to have a data plan to use it. No network connectivity is required at all. Never worry about paying data charges as the result of viewing your documents or that you will be unable to view the documents on an airplane or where network connectivity is limited.
Easy Enterprise Deployment
BeamReader software can be easily deployed through the BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES). Since the solution is completely native to the device, there is no need to install any additional hardware or software on your enterprise network, open any firewall ports, etc.
Scanned / Faxed PDF Support
BeamReader is great for viewing scanned and faxed PDF documents.
International Language Support
BeamReader supports most international languages. Whether you PDF documents are in Chinese or Hindi, don’t worry that you will not be able to view them.
Fastest PDF Viewing Solution for the BlackBerry
BeamReader is the fastest PDF viewing solution for the BlackBerry. Most PDF documents open in mere seconds.
Open E-mail Attachments
You can view PDF e-mail attachments with BeamReader. This requires BlackBerry OS 4.5 or higher. If you are using BES, viewing attachments requires BES OS 4.1.5 or higher.
Open PDF Documents from Memory Card and Device Internal Memory
BeamReader can be used to open PDF documents from memory card and the device internal memory. File access is available via an intuitive BeamReader File Browser or from the BlackBerry default file browser (requires OS 4.3 or higher).
Supports Even Older BlackBerry Models
BeamReader will work on any BlackBerry with OS 4.2 or higher. To open PDF e-mail attachments, OS 4.5 or higher is required.
