PDF Files with N8

When I try to open a PDF file with my N8 I get the message "Unable to open.  File type not supported".


I thought the N8 should have no problem with PDF documents.


Anyone got any advice???

Adobe reader should be there, if you've recently updated to Anna did you do  Parts 1&2 as well as it was in there along with QuickOffice.

Sir. My phone is updated to the latest and I've adobe reader as well as Quickoffice pre-installed. But, pdf files could be opened after opening those applications and giving command to read the pdf file from there. I can't open the pdf file directly from the memory drive even though I've provided Adobe reader as the default application for this type(.pdf). I also tried changing it to Quickoffice and also tried after resetting the phone. Same result. Other files could be opened from their respective default applications. Thank you for your time for reading this and please reply.

Always tend to use Picsel SmartOffice upon Symbian S^3 devices personally since QuickOffice taken over by Google as none of these woes.
