Adobe Reader X support announced for WP7

Adobe Acrobat PDF support has been available on Windows Mobile for years now, but until things like Text Reflow became supported and adopted, it was rarely a fun experience (plus slow load times). And while Microsoft Office is covered in Windows Phone 7, the fate of Adobe and PDF has been unsure, until now.

Today, Adobe announced Acrobat X solutions, including Acrobat, Reader and Suite. More importantly, they announced support for Windows Phone 7:

Expands PDF access to mobile devices with free Adobe Reader X for Android, Windows(R) Phone 7 and Blackberry Tablet OS. Safer viewing of PDF files with new Protected Mode security capabilities in Reader X.

Curious, no iPhone support? (snicker)

The whole shebang is expected to ship "within 30 days" although it is unclear if that means we'll see an Adobe Reader X in the Windows Phone Marketplace at the same time. Lets just hope its pretty and works well.

Adobe Reader X support announced for WP7

I'm glad to see and hear that Phone7 is getting a lot of top teir support. it speaks volume for the platform and I'm very excited about it.

Is this even necessary? PDF viewers are so prevalent in document viewers and office suites already I'm having trouble seeing where a standalone PDF viewer fits in unless it has the ability to create them. It's nice to see Adobe supporting WP7 but they have really painted themselves in a corner with some off their offerings.
