How to turn a Bluetooth device into 'digital paper'
Authored by: morespace54 on Oct 12, '07 12:55:23PM

Wouldn't it be easier to keep the output as a PDF file (multi-pages or not)? Does the iPhone ave a PDF reader?

Sadly the iPhone does not yet support Object Push, so this hint doesn't work for it. And if it did, I'd guess that you'd need to push an image file, as the iPhone only displays PDFs in the context of email attachments and web page downloads.

There was a cryptic message on the Apple Bluetooth developers mailing list from an Apple employee about them expanding iPhone Bluetooth capabilities in the future... so maybe someday Object Push will be added and this hint will work for the iPhone. One can only hope.

I agree - I would rather just store/save a PDF file.

I can transfer *any* file I want via the Bluetooth File Exchange program to the transflash card on my phone. However, with this method (perhaps its the ObjectPush - I have no idea) my Motorola RAZR complains of an unknown file type and rejects the transfer (ie - no PDF)

Also, I have to approve file transfers on my phone, even though I've configured it to automatically accept transactions with my laptop. Again, Bluetooth File Exchange works great (no prompting on the phone). Hopefully the new Automator (this month still?) will have better Bluetooth device support.

Note that you can easily modify this hint to push a PDF file - simply don't convert the file to an image first.
