PDF Display

Hello, I'm testing the Playbook simulator.


I want to view a pdf file stored locally. Despite I can see images stored locally, I can't see my pdf file. I have browse inside the Playbook browser and I have tried to see a URL with a pdf, but I can't see it.


Is this feature supported?

Re: PDF Display

There does not appear to be any PDF support in the simulator at this time.  No statements have been made about when or if we might see it, though they've said the real tablet will have "native PDF" support and there are many screenshots showing an Adobe PDF Reader icon.
