Quickoffice launches PDF reader for s60 devicesAug 14th, 2007 | By Editor | Category: Mobile, Software
Quickoffice, Inc., the leading provider of Microsoft Office™ document software for mobile devices, today announced the release of the Adobe® Reader® LE v2.5 for S60 on Symbian OS devices. Enhanced by Quickoffice with technology licensed from Adobe, the Reader gives mobile users access to Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files in a reliable and consistent manner, while preserving rich formatting and graphics. This release is the first product resulting from the recently signed agreement between Adobe and Quickoffice, which will see both companies continue to develop solutions for the S60 Symbian operating system.
“By adding Adobe PDF to our existing worldwide distribution, we have expanded our product offering and further strengthened our industry leadership in the mobile space,” said Gregg Fiddes, VP sales and partnerships for Quickoffice. “We believe this Adobe Reader LE v2.5 is a perfect complement to our award-winning Quickoffice Premier® product, and our users will value having a common user interface and experience for all major Office file formats.”
Adobe Reader provides mobile users with a nearly identical experience to Adobe’s desktop PDF software. The integration of the Adobe Reader LE v2.5 in the Quickoffice suite allows secure viewing of rich, high-impact content on mobile phones by leveraging the unique technologies and experience of both Quickoffice and Adobe. This Reader for S60 devices supports the latest Adobe PDF file formats and is loaded with new feature enhancements, such as ZoomView™, file manager and reflow view, which eliminates the need for left, right scrolling.
“By working closely with Quickoffice, a company with a reputation for leadership, technical innovation and distribution capabilities, we are better able to bring the latest Adobe technology to the mobile phone user,” said Mike Bergeron, VP of business development for mobile and devices at Adobe. “Quickoffice has done a great job delivering this customized version of the Adobe Reader LE 2.5.”
Adobe Reader LE v2.5 is currently available via Quickmanager, Quickoffice’s unique, secure on-device client, for an introductory price of $14.95 (about Rs 650).
