Thinking of getting an E6 - what can Symbian^3 do?

Hi people

I used to have a Nokia N82, and am considering a Nokia E6 for its battery life and camera. However, I've had Android phones for the past couple of years, so I'm out of touch with what the new Nokias can do.

I've had a bit of a search and I think I'm right in saying the E6 can do all this:
- Email sync with Gmail
- Contact and calendar sync with Google through the MS Exchange interface
- Use the camera flash as a torch
- Google Latitude
- TV out over composite
- VoIP over WiFi using SIP

Are any of those incorrect? Any caveats?

Then, some things I can't find definite answers for
- Does Opera Mini work well on the E6? Reviews say the E6's built-in browser isn't as good as the Android/iOS browser.
- Can it act as a WiFi hotspot to share the HSDPA connection? Wikipedia says it has JoikuSpot, but is that true if I buy an E6 in the UK?
- Nokia's specification page says "HD 720p Video playback on HD TV" - how does it do that? Component video? DLNA?

And finally, are there any similar handsets I should consider instead?

Thanks for any help!
