Can't open PDF-Files on DEV Alpha B Device

When i download a PDF and try to open it, i get the Error: "File can not be opened" (Translated by me from german, its not the original error message).

 

Is there any PDF-Support on this Device?

The documentation says, that there should be an adope-reader app.

 

If i try to invoke it, i get the "bb::system::InvokeReplyError::NoTarget:" -error

I think may be the new OS will support adobe reader. See this.. https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/documentation/device_platform/invocation/adobereader.html

 

Here application/pdf is a supported mime type for invocation now. This was not the case some time back.

 

The MIME types for Facebook, LinkedIn, Youtube, Twitter and Adobe Reader were added to the below list only recently.

Latest Dev Alpha A/B OS doesn't have Adobe reader installed, nor fb, twitter, docs to go. So invocation of these app is not possible at this moment.

Thx for the quick answer.

What about the simulator?

 

PDF is a core component for our app.

 

edit: is there an ETA, when it will be possible?
