Thinkfree Office comes pre-installed in gio and with that you can view not only .pdf but also doc/xls/ppt files. You can also download adobe reader from market to view pdf files.
Apps for popular emails services such as Yahoo, Hotmail and Gmail are already available in android market. Also, there is a standard email app pre-installed which can be configured for other email services. So, using browser to read emails is not worth it.
I'm considering to buy this one instead the Pro. Need to clarify few things: can PDF files be viewed as there is no adobeflash? cmiiw. Also, how's the browser's display for checking mails etc.? Thanks.

ok i'll add you.
rev, 27 Jan 2012is that galaxy gio support for skype???Yes you can install skype on your galaxy gio. There's an official skype app in market.
However, I've yet to figure out how to do video chat on it without having front camera. I couldn't even watch video of my friend who was talking to me on skype from his iphone4. If anyone knows, do let me know.

I didn't feel any lagging either.
Also, you can search on youtube to find out that people are playing NFS on gio. :)

I am still unable to download ad... moreOn gio, you can't download flash player from market because there is no official flash support for armv6 processors.
However, if you root your gio then you can easily install flash player on it. I have installed fully functional flash player 11.1 (that's the latest I think) on my gio and I can not only watch live tv (a few channels of my interest) but also play flash based videos (which can be optimized for mobile viewing like 240p etc.) and online flash based games.
i dont recomend this phone because i have this phone and it has poor graphics for games. i cant even play raging thunder. it is also very slow mobile.

AnonD-27884, 24 Jan 2012when updated to gingerbread are applications installed straight to sd card?????????and is akie... moreNo you'll have to manually move them to SD card and not all apps could be moved.
Upgrading via kies is better than odin because your warranty will remain intact (if its still valid). For flashing via odin, you'll have to search for specific gingerbread build that samsung in your country is currently offering and that may be a bit difficult.
So, you better go with kies upgrading!
