Opening a pdf file in AngularJS

I am using Angular and all I want is to open this pdf file in another window. The pdf file is in local directory.

appControllers.controller('reportsController', function AppCtrl($scope, $http, API_URL, $sce, $window) {

 $window.open("file:///C://Development//Report3cqo30eyljm.pdf");
}

that will not work, the browser need to know what it is, so you need a server side code

Thanks! So I generated report on Server and accessing them from AngularJS client.

What is the best practice for mobile web app for generating reports? Right now, I am just using desktop to test the report and opening them up in new browser. IS that the right way for mobile web app?
