AlternateReader: Powerful S60v5 PDF Reader Freeware For Nokia 5800

If you’re looking for a true S60v5 PDF reader freeware for Nokia / Symbian smartphone, think about AlternateReader and forget about buying QuickOffice Adobe Reader LE 2.5.

AlternateReader is an open source project based on Poppler and DjvuLibre, initiated by kind Vasily Kharitonov, to develop a DJVU and PDF reader for Symbian OS 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, 9.4 (i.e. S60 3rd Edition, S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1, S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2, S60 5th Edition).

In the test using Nokia 5800, AlternateReader is capable to open a 34MB PDF document file without complaining memory error!

As you can see in this video, AlternateReader is slow when rendering a page with graphic / image (due to low power CPU of the phone), but it is responsive when opening those plain text pages:

The AlternateReader download link contains 3 sisx installers targeted for S60v3, S60v3 FP1/FP2, and S60v5 respectively – so choose one that is applicable for your smartphone, e.g. AlternateReader S9.4 1.08(4) Release International.sisx for Nokia 5800 which is powered by Symbian OS 9.4 or S60 5th Edition.
