There's nothing published yet, as far as I know, but you should be able to invoke the reader at least as a "Card", using the Invocation Framework. I think we're expecting these things to be documented by end of November at this point, with the next release of the beta SDK, but I've heard nothing specific about the PDF reader itself.

There is a PDF reader source code has been released recently for cascades BB10, it renders PDF pages as images with any resolution you specify.
