pdf reader in 5800

I have just bought Nokia 5800 express music. But was very disappointed to see that it didn't had document viewer or pdf reader. When I connected to internet, I was able to install document viewer.

But still don't have a pdf reader for this.

Please suggest how can I get a pdf reader for 5800.

Re: pdf reader in 5800

If you check in the phones Download! application you should see a PDF reader available for download in there.

 

Unfortunately it's only a 15 day trial as no free PDF readers are available for that model yet.

ReadManiac is totally free. Occasional internet connection req'd if you're downloading books from the website. But, it's worth a go as it's compatible with the 5800 XpressMusic (nice phone :-))

You guys discuss about download document viewer for Nokia Express 5800. I could not find any link that can download this application, can some one here list the link to the download site?

Re: pdf reader in 5800

Some network operators require Nokia to remove the Download! application from phones, so it might not be there at all, if your model is obtained from an operator that has required this "customization".

Re: pdf reader in 5800

That program isn't very good and doesn't work well on a 5800xm.

 

At the moment the only way to view fully featured PDFs as they were intended to be viewed is by purchasing the reader.

Re: pdf reader in 5800

 

Sorry mate, I'm not sure it does and apparently it doesn't work too well with the 5800. A last resort could be to convert your .pdfs to .txt using an Adobe online conversion tool and then use ReadManiac to view. But, not an ideal solution. I'd go with the official pdf reader.

If you are wanting to view those files on a 5800 you need the quickoffice viewer.  It's available from the "Download!" app on the phone.

Re: pdf reader in 5800

The best available option is pdf+ for opening pdf files in full screen. Its available free on net and is best fit for 5800

For other files like xls, doc, ppt etc you need Quick Office.

Re: pdf reader in 5800

Do you guys mean I need to connect my phone to internet for download a Quick Office? Or can some one send the link to down load from PC.
