[Feature req.] How to open local files on Android filesystem?

      Description

      I'm looking for functionality to open local files on the Android file system.

      The case for me is that when I download a file, it's stored in /mnt/sdcard/file.ext. But I can't link to the file with file:/// or content://

      file:/// Gives me a blank white window with the text "undefined".
      content:// Does nothing.

      How can I implement some script to open files I just downloaded to the filesystem? (like pdf/doc/...)

      Edit:
      Simon MacDonald: This is a feature request!
