I have had the phone for maybe four months and wanted to give it a
good set of tests prior to a report on it.
Bottom line .. one of the best smart cell phones I have used yet.
The E61 is a thinnish phone somewhat the size of the Motorola Q (see
photo and specs at http://europe.nokia.com/phones/e61). No camera (I
find that an advantage)
It handles a quad GSM bands and WCDMA and Edge. It has a wifi
capability. Mostly all one could ask for. The battery life is
fantastci. I have yet to drain the battery down with extensive use of
I run Mail for Exchange on it and the push mail works very very well.
There are a set of apps that come with it that are handy and there
are a lot f apps out there for the S60 3 software.
I have used it successfully in Europe and JAPAN!!!! on the 3G and GSM
The stability is fine with only very infrequent freezes (compared to
MS Mobile software).
All in all a great phone that often replaces my Mac as the unit I
I use T-Mobile in the USA and their international roaming is
reasonably priced (well unreasonable but good compared to others)
