Regarding that (not to go too far offtopic) -- if I had the ability to read docs off of my SD card (PDFs mainly) it would be a very proper, normal business use. I would keep things like the phone extensions list of the office on it and various XLS spreadsheets I need (techie junk, mainly cross-reference docs I keep updated), as well as MP3s and such.
I in fact did this on the S60 handsets I have, and it was excellent to not have every company extension in my address book, and just look them up as I needed to call a random person.
Some hardcore business users might balk at something like that ("what if it was stolen!" or whatever), but the lack of a true, good PDF reader that can read off a SD card is a killer to this platform and something I sorely miss - it's what keeps people on Treo devices to some extent. It just depends on what type of company you work for, what you do and how you like to use your handset.
(for the record I've tried eFile and it's pretty unusable on a Pearl, the fonts are sooo tiny and it can't read SD card yet. personal opinion of course, I'm sure other people love it. I just want a generic Adobe PDF reader.)
