Yes you can rotate the iPhone and the view will switch to landscape,  
for both DOC and PDF files (or email attachments).

(I tried uploading these to .Mac in order to save bandwidth, but .Mac  
seems totally unresponsive right now, at least from France. Sorry for  
the bad focus, that's about as much as Photo Booth can offer.)

So, as usual, that's down to CM being too light for screen viewing at  
nowadays resolutions.

Safari can view PDF files and rotate view and enlarge them, and Mail  
does this too. I suspect that's because both use the same PDFKit  

All this, of course, for 1st gen Edge iPhone. Hopefully next week  
(French release on 17 July) we'll be pleasantly surprised with the 2nd  
gen 3G iPhone.
