It's true that the e61 is more a phone and the Treo more a PDA. But phone functions tend to be far less complex than PDA functions. With phones, you dial am number and you talk. The Treo does that without problems. It even has the great "threaded SMS feature", something the e61 does not have. My information on calls received, duration, etc. was also much better on my Treo than on my e61.

OK, now you can say, why don't you go back to the Treo. Answer: no UMTS yet, but without major progress in the S60/e61 arena, I will move back, despite better screen, form factor, browser, overall hardware.
