Duncan, thanks for detailing your impressions of the E90 (and Steve for explaining about the E61).

I'd been considering the E61i as an alternative, not sure which of the networks has that as opposed to just the E61, as I've never seen the i in the shops. (Anyone know if the E61i is available subsidised on contract in the UK and if so which network? Sorry should post that in the thread for the E61i I guess.)

I think I'll still hold out for a few weeks so I can try the E90's keyboard in person - Steve, I know you think it's very usable - and see if I get on with that or the E61i's better.

Steve or anyone else, do you know why no one like Nokia has bought Psion's keyboard patents? Has anyone ever tried? I really would like to know. Hah, maybe we could start a fund for diehard 5mx dinosaurs like me to all chip in so we can try to raise enough money to buy out those patents together! And license them to Nokia, Sony Ericsson, etc etc... Anyone game?

Anyone could make a keyboard with good enough keys, like Psions, without patent royalties - they just haven't wanted to 8-(

The Psion patent was mainly for the 'slide and brace' system, I believe.
