DataViz, makers of the Documents to Go program that is included with the Treo 650, will next week demonstrate at the CTIA Wireless show a future product that will include native PDF support. This will allow users to view PDF files withouth having to use a desktop computer.

"We are pleased to see DataViz continue to innovate and expand its Documents To Go offerings to support native Adobe PDF files," said David Diangson, director of business development and licensing at Palm, Inc. "Having the ability to view content in PDF format, without the need for any desktop interaction, using our Treo smartphones, LifeDrive mobile managers or Tungsten handhelds effectively addresses a significant need in the market."

According to DataViz, native PDF technology will include support for embedded graphics, tables, multiple zoom levels, page layout and word wrap views to provide a desktop-quality view of PDF files on Palm devices. In addition, no desktop application or pre-processing of files is required before the file can be viewed on the mobile device. Customers who receive PDF files as e-mail attachments can easily view them right on their mobile device.

PDF support will be in a new versin of Documents To Go later this fall. Previous customers will be able to upgrade for $29.99 directly from DataViz.
