Branching out with the Nokia E61

Nokia's E61 had the Finns in a tizz, what with Symbian OS 9.1 and a brand new (for them) form factor. It's clearly aimed at the competition, so how does it look at this stage of its development? Ewan finds out.

Read on in the full article.

"...with a release date expected in Q2 2006..."

Wasn't this supposed to be released in 1Q2006?? I have been hanging around with my N-Gage too long. This was going to be my dream phone but I'm not going to just wait till June!! Have to get something for the next 6 months...

Can somebody PLEASE buy Ewan a new digital camera?

I really hope this will come out fast. Ewan, do you know if the cover will be replacable?

Frank.

Of course the name that springs to mind for the E61 is the Nokia "Raspberry" - aimed in the direction of RIM. = P

The device was announced as being Q1 2006, however that probably means available in the market at the end of Q1 and I'd expect it to be available in quantities in Q2.

The cover is not removable in the sense of express on covers, but much like the 6680 it will probably be possible to get differen covers from third parties via eBay and replace them yourself.

Clealry the E61 is aimed at the Blackberry Market, but it will also compete with the Motorola Q, and the Treo line of devices.

The keyboard doesn't.

Yes!

This is the only thing that is going to make me to give up my BlackBerry! And OH how much I want this day to come. Not because I don't like BlackBerry, but simply because I can not blieve there is no worthy alternative to that. E61 certainly looks like a worthy alternative, especially considering the support for BlackBerry connect.

The only thing I am worrying about is the lack of the scroll wheel - I know it is replaced by three buttons but it is always so nice to play with that scrolling thing...

Yes Bluetooth is taken for granted. I believe (though not 100% on this) that it is Bluetooth 1.2. Some other 3rd Edition phones have been reported as Bluetooth 2.0... I guess it will depend which Bluetooth implementation is stable for certification as imagine Nokia have been working on 2.0 support.

what about the handling of attached files? does anybody know if the improvement of the software has solved compatibility problems that I got with previous releases of Symbian models?
