It's here

nokia e61i

The largest mobile since the Motorola International 3200. ;-) And a very very impressive device. Surfing via UMTS/HSDPA or WLAN is extremely fast. Email not so much. Switching between messages takes about a second, which is way better than 2nd generation S60 devices but a far cry from Crackberrys and the Blackjack or Treo 750.

I tried to install BlackBerry Connect but failed to make it work. The Nokia Download site says:

(Germany only) Nokia S60 BlackBerry Connect (7.1.4)_8(.SISX, 1,74 MB)
NOTE: You need software version 1.633.62.05 on your device.

However the device only has 1.633.22.05 and there is no update available. First I figured that the 62 is a typo, but after I could not get it to work I assume I have to wait for a newer firmware. I then installed Nokia Mail for Exchange which worked immediately. I must admit that I am getting more impressed with Direct Push the longer I use it.

Still playing with all the software on the device but so far I am not missing anything. It even comes with a feed reader.

AFAIK the E61i does not support HSDPA. Am I wrong?

Sascha, you are right. Fixed the posting.

looking forward to your review, my e61i is great!

... and our iSync phone plugins work with it ;-) Ok, launch2net, too.

Since you mentioned it, Launch2Net does not work for me anymore at all. It asks for my password then bombs. I have removed it and reinstalled, same result.

As for iSync, I simply downloaded the plugin from Nokia.

Easy: There is a bug in VM Ware 3. It prevents some software like launch2net to run properly. so you have to use Beta 2 or wait for Beta 4, but please uninstall Beta 3 at the moment.
(Repeat: Do not use Beta-Software on productive systems ;-) Err, all Beta except FoneLink, that is)

I am afraid, VMware is more important than launch2net.

Volker Weber, 2007-05-17

... hopefully they will fix the bug in beta 4, then ;-)

Hi

Is the battery life better than treo 750?
