    Can both PalmOS and PPCs read pdf files? It would be nice to store some journal articles for reading during downtime.

    Yes, both can open PDF files. Adobe Acrobat is available for Windows Mobile and Palm OS.

    There is currently an issue with the official free PDF reader for PPC from Adobe. The actual PDF reader itself works just fine but the installer is not compatible with WM 5.0 (or the new 6.0) so some people encounter trouble when attempting to install it via ActiveSync. There is a work around, but if you don't want to do that a good free alternative is PocketXPDF:

    There are plenty of other PDF readers but you have to pay for them.
