Nokia Adobe PDF Reader LE
A small screen compatible PDF reader is a must have mobile application for any of us who owns a Nokia smartphone of Series S60. Thanks to both Adobe and Quickoffice for developing such a quality intensive Nokia app for our symbian devices called the Adobe Reader LE for S60 mobile. Adobe Reader LE 2.5 helps you read PDF documents and books on the move and straight from your mobile phone without the need of any other phone memory intensive unsigned 3rd party software which may hamper security of the important documents.
Adobe Reader LE for Nokia offers an intuitive yet powerful file manager, on screen zooming capabilities and easy reformatting of text when needed with the push of a single button. The biggest advantage of Adobe Reader LE for Nokia is that it can render any kind of PDF documents, including images, exactly the same way as on the laptop or PC. To use this mobile PDF reader it is recommend that you have at least 2MB of phone memory available at all times. It has the option to render PDF files in different modes so that, whichever your preferences are you can choose. Let us take a detailed look at the key features that Adobe Reader for S60 3rd edition symbian devices brings:
This small screen PDF reader has a ‘reflow view’ or an alternate view for optimum viewing experience. It is most useful for text intensive PDF files. The texts doesn’t break when you are scrolling down fast, rather it flows like image sliding down on a liquid surface.
It ensures the exact rendering of any PDF files regardless of this being a mobile application with limited scopes because of the nature of mobile phones. The layout never breaks and takes much less time to display.
Multiple zooming angles or (ZoomView) for all documents is a real killer feature and comes handy when you are reading your documents on the move and require to have bigger sized texts for better easier reading.
It also offers screen rotation of upto a 360 degrees which is rarely useful but can come handy at certain times when you want to switch to landscape mode for expanding the viewable area.
The mobile rendering engine of Nokia Adobe Reader LE can automatically adjust itself for shades, transparency, anti-aliasing etc.
Supports instant and dynamic character and text size with an easy to scroll button for multiple results.
It supports rendering for multiple types of embeddable fonts, data encryption, tables, properties etc.
With Adobe Reader LE 2.5 for mobile you also get a file manager and Quick update manager absolutely free.
All in all this mobile PDF reader can handle both small sized to gigantic sized PDF files easily provided that you have enough phone memory available. I tried to render a 9MB PDF file and though it took around 30 seconds to properly display the entire file but it actually rendered the file perfectly without any flaws.
It supports all GSM based Nokia N-Series and E-Series S60 Symbian OS smartphones likeN95 8gb, N97, N85, N79, E62, N96, N91, N78, E63, E71, E90, 6220, N82, N81, E51, 6120, E65, E61i, E66, E50, N77, N76, E60, E51, E61, N92, N93, N95, E65, E70, N75, 6290, 5800 Xpress Music, 5500, N80, 5710, 6121, 3250, 6124, 5320, Xpress Music etc.

For Nokia S60 v5 & S60 Symbian^3 based phones like the N97, N97 Mini, 5530, X6, C6, 5800, N8 etc. you can now enjoy the upgraded full featured application with a simple trick without the need of any hacking/signing whatsoever. This trick only works for smartphones that have Quickoffice Adobe Reader built in and will let you use your older Adobe PDF Reader license to register for the latest version easily.
First, download the attachment from below and extract it. Second, copy the extracted folder (and its contents) & paste it in the C:\data folder of your phone. Third, browse into the location C:\System\data inside your phone and locate the file named “OEM142592sys” within that folder. Fourth, make a backup of the existing file by copying it elsewhere just in case.
Fifth, after the backing up is complete, delete the file “OEM142592sys” from the C:\System\data location. Don’t worry if it says that permission is not granted (it is because the file is in use or was in use), simply reboot your phone and try to delete again without launching Quickoffice Adobe PDF first, you will see it will definitely get deleted then. Sixth, after the delete is done with reboot your smartphone again. Now you will notice that your Adobe PDF Reader is a licensed full version app which is recognizing the file/folder you copy/pasted from below and you can even upgrade the installer with any newer version online if you want to. Fun eh?
