    a microSD card is a microSD card. you can put any files in it that you want, even those not recognized by the pearl. you won't be able to do anything with them on the phone, but you'll be able to plug it into another computer and transfer them over. so yes, you can use your phone like a flash thumbdrive

    Anfrey is correct. For Microsoft office viewing just use the built in capabilities. This assumes you are on a corporate BES. It can open .doc, .xls, .ppt, and .pdf.

    Assuming you aren't on a BES, you can view/edit exel files with Simprit's Grid Magic. I use the expired free trial because I only need to view Excel.

    Stay away from Dynoplex eOffice. They claim to do Word and Excel and more. Unfortunately their marketing is great but the product is garbage.

    To show Powerpoint directly from your blackberry to a projector via Bluetooth is Showmate (I forget the rest of the name). Unless your company is very loose with security policies on Blackberry devices it won't work.
