I read on one of the review of the E90 (maybe it was on AAS) that the phone is rather huge and bulky. That is one of the main reasons why I'm sticking to the E61i.

How is the E61i then?

So I've got a N95 and the only thing I'd miss is probably the camera.

That said who's waiting for the E90 before trying an E61i? The battery for me is the biggest thing that appeals on the E61i.

Just how long does it take to get use to using QWERTY keyboard on the E61i?

I saw one used for sale the other day but the smart move here may be to wait for the E90 and then pick up an E61i at a reduced price. Is there an announced successor of the E61i at this point? I'm sure they'll improve upon the camera but there's not much they could do to improve on either build quality or keyboard as they seem exception on the E61i. Here in Thailand the E61/x QWERTY models aren't the popular presumably because of the lack of Thai script on the keyboard but they can be picked up for less then $400 out and about.

I think the E90 is too much of a behemoth to be useful but the smart play is picking up the E61i at a reduced price once the E90 shows up.

E61i does have a camera, only 2MPx though.

How are the fonts on the e61i? I find the font size quite miserable on my e50 and am seriously considering an upgrade for the wi-fi as well.

e61i - my experience

Hi all

Just migrated from O2 XDAIIi to e61i.

Initial impressions -

No more sagging pockest - it's MUCH smaller and lighter

Screen blank power saving is a nuisance and was really buried in the options and not only that it cannot be switched off when on external power - or can it?

Screen MUCH smaller as well - not sure i like that.

Cannot get used to it not being touch screen and want to touch links when browsing

Mobipocket installed and works without a hitch

Tom Tom Nav 6 does not install - still work in progress:frown

Joystick and buttons are great

access to corporate e-mail went easily through IMAP4.

Wireless is iffy.

Linked to Jabra 250 and TomTom GPS units easily.

More as I get to it.

HTH
Andrew

Exclamation e61i breaks TomTom Nav6

See alternative thread on this problem and Tom Toms response.

See below:-

Dear Mr Turner,

Thank you for contacting TomTom Customer Support.

Following our discussion, we can confirm that the Nokia E61i is not compatible with the TomTom Navigator 6 software. Please contact us should you have any further questions.

With Best Regards

The TomTom Customer Support Team


Question is what are the chances TomTom or Nokia of the fixing this problem?

Hope someone saves themselves a load of sweat with this.
