@elp: I hear you, nice rant. I suspect you're right and Messaging has never been tested to destruction in the real world way you describe. it's fine for accounts which get cleared by a desktop app on each mail check AND for non-HTML emails, but throw in IMAP4 or GMail POP3 or HTML and you're in trouble.

And yes, I use the GMail Java app as well most of the time. Wish they'd do a native S60 version though!

nice description,

i would add resco photo viewer to you list, i was amazed by the speed it can review photo and display also full sized, maybe ten times faster than the built in app without loosing too much memory. can crop or resize photos before sending to a blog with opera full version (mini4 is great for surfing fast yeah).

I would also add lonely cat games "profimail" software. their app is quite efficient. I could use it this summer when i was receiving tons of span during my vacation for i don't know why reason and its rules helped me at a wifi hotspot filter several thousands of email. It can read easealy html email.

I did not test their gmail handling, for this i was sticking to the java version, but this one was going nuts lately (not version 1.0, the second version which is better but slower, on the first version deleting emails delete the wrong email).

I whish Gcalendar could be easealy synchronised over the air to the device. in the meantime i do it manually with the quite speedy and well designed handy calendar (but not very complete for heavy use). And i configure Gcalendar to sen sms reminder for double protection :-)

You can sync over the air to Google Calendar - just use GooSync - I've been doing this for over a month now. See my article on it here on AAS.

i have switched to Google Mobile homepage to access my gmail than the java Gmail app..its much faster and uses so much less memory.. i personalized my gmail inbox to appear in the Google Mobile Search homepage..i will switch to Gmail app if they ever built a native s60 version as what mentioned by Steve.

another tips for the e61i camera is to change the white balance to incandescent or flourescent from Auto each time you snap a pic, it make the pic colors nicer and less blue..

you can also snap really nice black and white pic with worry bout noice and stuff

to edit pics, search the net to download and install the same editor in nseries for cropping and resizing

I got an E90 but I read this article and found it very interesting.
But I don't see the point about the difference between the E and N series.
My previous phone was an E61 and that one was really business qualified, but you could still have movies, mp3 and games.
The E90 is just the same issue, you can do anything you can do with an N series aswell.
- Nokia N900 (v10.2010.19-1 | pr1.2 | RX-51) with 4gb micro-SD, lots of software!
- Nokia E90 (v210.34.75 | 12-04-2008 | RA-6) with 8gb micro-SD, lots of options & software!
- Nokia E50 (v07.36.0.0 | 07-09-2007 | RM-170) with 2gb micro-SD "premier" & lots of software!

My Nokia Phone history--> 6150 | 3210 | 6210 | 6600 & N-Gage | N70 & 9500 | E61 & N73 ME | E90 & E50 | N900

I appreciate this article. In fact, it's really difficult to switch out off E61i. While new Nseries phones have many fantastic features, it miss the full QWERTY keyboard and the large display like E61i. I think it's hard to leave E61i, even if I miss multimedia features on it. I enjoy its practicality and its computer-like feeling, while I'm not business man. The easiest example is that I type this comment from it using it's great and easy keyboeard, from the Operamini application.

@slitchfield i had already seen your article on Goosync but i feel reluctant already to leave everything in the hand of google, so adding another webserver in the loop... Also many function i would need are not free. I would prefer a solution like on my linux box, taking the ics file from google, for example each night when i am near my wifi/adsl box.

Question How to make N-series more E-like?

My question is quite opposite... I am giving up of my E61i for N95, probably only until E71 becomes available. I was aware of no qwerty and I know I will miss it a lot, but I was not aware that the phone is so limited in what it will let you do.


I needed XVID codec for a friend's laptop, but the computer didn't had any wireless stuff enabled. So, when I downloaded the install file to my E61i, I transfered it via bluetooth to N95, since it uses standard USB cable and will be able to connect to the PC via cable, only to find out that it will not allow me to open the INBOX message with the attachment as it does not "understand" the file type.

Ok, then I wanted to re-download the file directly on N95, only to find out that it's browser has the same issue with file in question (PC EXE install file), it is UNABLE TO DOWNLOAD IT, as it does not know it's type...

So, I have a couple of hundreds euros worth N-series powerhorse ("what computers have become"), which is not capable to download a 600k file on it's 8GB storage media.

How can I make more like E-series?

Great reading, ...I have tried a number of e-mail apps and like Nokia's Mail for Exchange as it is a Symbian app, wich provides an integrated display of of your latest e-mails on the E61's first screen, just above your meeting reminders and things to do list. This app requires Microsoft Exchange Server....the trick is to set up a mail account on, and then set up GMail to forward all e-mails to your e-mail You can also set up a rule in Lotus Notes, to forward all mail to your address@mail2web. This way all your e-mail is accesible on your phone in one app. I would schedule checking your mail every half hour or so, any more frequent syncs will use up your battery.

At the end a mobile is really meant to make phone calls, and for this I would recommend Truphone. I bought my wife the E61i and for my son and myself the E61. With Truphone I can make free VoIP calls to land lines and gsm handsets to over 40 countries, when I go on business trips I can call my family using truphone. The truphone SIP or VoIP number can also be contacted from Google Talk. It is noteworthy that all three E61's together cost less than a single N95 or E90 handset.

What I would like to know is how to set-up push to talk or make calls using radio signals or bluetooth, when within range i.e. Also referred to as a terra network.

New link for E61i Nokia Maps

The link provided in this article to download the Nokia maps application is not working anymore.
Does anybody know where I can find this application or which equivalent I can use from Nokia website?
