Foxit® Announces Mobile Reader for Android Mobile Device Makers

PDF Reader of Choice for Over 100 Million Users Now Available for Android Device Manufacturers to Bundle with Pre-Loaded Product Offerings

FREMONT, Calif. - September 27, 2011 - Foxit® Corporation, a leading provider of solutions for reading, editing, creating, organizing, and securing PDF documents, today announced the release of the company’s Foxit Mobile Reader for the Android platform.  This release of the Foxit Mobile Reader is geared to Android original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), enabling them to bundle a powerful, industry-standard PDF technology into their mobile hardware devices. With the announcement, Foxit’s multi-award winning PDF technology, recently selected as the preloaded PDF reader on the HTC Flyer tablet, will now be available to millions of Android device users. The Foxit PDF Reader is already the PDF reader of choice for over 100 million users globally.

Today, OEMs face an intensifying race to incorporate top-of-the-line, pre-loaded applications in their mobile devices and must take into account the massive increase in the number of business and consumer users of mobile devices. With Foxit Mobile Reader, Android device manufacturers can augment the suite of robust applications they already offer by bundling a PDF reader specifically built for high–quality, high-performance rendering, maximum document fidelity, and speed; similar Android applications come at a cost to end users.

Foxit Mobile Reader’s standout features include:

Innovative Annotation Tool. Allows users to add signatures or notes to their PDF documents using their fingertips.

Advanced Display. Reflow capabilities allow for automatic rearrangement of content to permit PDFs designed for a full-sized sheet of paper to be easily read on devices with small screens.

Advanced Document Page Management. Enables users to add, edit and delete bookmarks in their documents.

"Our PDF technology gives OEMs a competitive edge in an intensely competitive market flooded with applications that don’t measure up," said Frank Kettenstock, VP of marketing for Foxit Corporation. "By pre-installing Foxit’s Mobile Reader on their Android devices, OEMs can deliver the same PDF technology that has already been adopted by 100 million consumers and business users around the world."
