Nice thread! I'm also a business woman and I never run out of office paper works and aside from bringing a laptop I edit and create document files like excel, powerpoint and word files using OfficeSuite Pro which is reliable and handy and I want also to be updated with the latest world news so I also have NewsAce Multimedia News Reader which is a nice app from the market that lets you watch video at the same time reading the news and has a lot of news feed to choose from so those are my only applications installed in my Xperia Arc S Phone.

All good apps, but I use Catch Notes instead of Evernote, mainly because I am too cheap to pay a yearly fee and I need offline access to my notes. In a way Catch is a little old school because of the tag system it uses to organize, although the later version employs streams, which is really useful as you can seperate business and personal info as well as share a specific stream. There is of course a paid version of catch as well that gives you unlimited streams and greater online storage. Like Evernote the ability to have my info synced automatically to all my devices is incredibly useful and efficient.

You have listed out some great apps. But instead of "ScanBizCards" I'll recommend "WorldCard Mobile" because I feels that it's providing greater accuracy when compared to ScanBizCards. Put on a try, sure you will like it too :)
