Our friends at SLG Mobile (formerly BeamBerry Solutions) just pinged us that BeamReader, a huge favorite at the BlackBerry Cool 15 – and winner of an offer sheet from the BlackBerry Partners Fund – has left beta and is now officially available. BeamReader is a full fidelity native PDF viewing application for BlackBerry, meaning that all document rendering occurs on the BlackBerry without the need for server side pre-processing or even a network connection. The hallmark of BeamReader is its ability to render actual fonts embedded in a PDF document as opposed to using font substitutes that adversely affect the document’s look and formatting.
“We are delighted to introduce BeamReader to the BlackBerry market and firmly believe that a native full fidelity PDF reader makes the BlackBerry platform more complete for business users and more competitive with other platforms,” said Evgeny Lebanidze, President and CEO of SLG Mobile.
