    H,i non-judgemental users. Hard to believe: Didn't have any desk or lap top when I bought my Sprint650 last April. Was told by Sales guy I didn't need lap/desktop, either. Bought last Treo650 in stock. The box had been opened. I knew better but I was desperate.Bought it. -Can't dload acrobat reader,etc.-Got a 1 gig sd card. Went to Adobe's site.They say they have no Mac/Palm reader downloadable.
    I am messed up from spinal injury ... surgery(LongStory). Am unable to shop,housebound,alone. Planned to get G4 Pwrbook when I figured out which size I wanted & could physically manage. Love my 650 so much(ergonomically) I didn't really need anything else, yet. However,it appears I must install Treo software on something & get updates to function. So... I just got a new 12"pbook but am Really Nervous setting it up to sync with Treo650.
    Q: What's up with no AcrobatReader for Palm.What do I do? Get a Windull laptop? 1) I never installed palm desktop on anything yet. Acrobat isn't on palm desktop, is it? Help! & Thanks in advance. lazy lyrigal

    Sorry about your injury, I've got a crapped up back too, but nothing like what it sounds like you're dealing with...

    Anyways, Palm Desktop will install fine on Macs.

    There is an Acrobat reader for Palms, I'm not sure if it has a Mac version though. The Palm file itself isn't the problem, the roadblock is that Acrobat files first need to be converted on your computer before they can be read on your device. So I'm not sure if there is a Mac flavor for that. (I use both Mac & PC's, but do all my syncing via my PC's)

    There are other alternatives for acrobat files, Picsel for one. DataViz is said to have a native reader in the next version of Docs To Go, so you may want to hold out for that.

    I just went over to Adobes site, and the converter is available for Macs:

    Three versions of Adobe Reader for Palm OS are available for download.
    Version 3.05

    * Supports Macintosh and Microsoft® Windows® operating systems
    * Displays color Adobe PDF files on color Palm OS devices
    * Allows the transfer and viewing of Adobe Digital Rights Management (DRM) protected eBooks
    * Allows access to Adobe PDF files from various storage devices
    * Displays Adobe Photoshop Album slide shows
    * Enables printing using the EFI PrintMe network (English version only)
    * Available languages: English (French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish to follow)

    Don't we all. It's totally useless if you get a .pdf attachment through email.

    Let's hope Acrobat2Go or whatever they'll call it, is all that we hope for.

    I have Acrobat reader for Mac and Palm and I can look at PDFs on my Treo 650. Are you saying you can't, or that you'd rather use the Docs to Go version when it comes out?

    Files need to be converted before you can view them on your Treo, you can't view a native file. So, if you're on the Treo, and get a pdf file in an email attachment, you can't view it with Adobe Reader.

    DataViz will supposedly be able to read native pdf files.
