I may drop in $0.02, the question has not been appropriately (successfully?) answered yet, I get the spidey sense that luc-mobile and I are common soldiers in the same battle. I *do* use the MemoPad to store notes (and Tasks - neverending Tasks are a sneaky way to store lots of notes that sync around) but it's far, far insufficient for the needs.

Here, lemme plug in my BB and see what texts I have (which I store in \tBooks, much like \eBooks (MobiPocket) and \MDict (dictionaries)) on my card:

778395   1_Mindstar_Rising.txt
700458   2_A_Quantum_Murder.txt
1071160  3_The_Nano_Flower.txt
927307   Beowulfs_Children.txt
3047     Blue_States.txt
84516    breakfastclub.txt
3044     calif.txt
45118    const.txt
487579   Count_Zero.txt
1493     farc.txt
460900   Neuromancer.txt
As is obvious, I have books, notes, and even a copy of the US Constitution and the script from Breakfast Club sitting on my SD card. MemoPad can *not* handle these things, what luc-mobile and I search for is a good, basic-but-usable plain text editor/viewer that can be found almost anywhere.

Heck, I'd love a mini 'vi' even. :-D
