I purchased this phone 7days ago,and now I'm really stasified with the phone,the screen is brilliant and amazing,OS is so stable comparing other nokia Symbian devices.
The only drawback is lack of touchscreen but in presence of a nice qwerty keyboard,it is not important.
(SYMBIAN) sumone hates this phone beckose there is no camera , do they know it has wlan SYMBIAN
SYMBIAN is an OS (OPERATING SYSTEME) like windows mobile but it's not a pocket pc with windows converted apps it's a SYMBIAN application
with symbian you can receave all incoming messages Bluetooth,txt,mms,e-mail,to memory card
and with 75 MB of INTERNAL MEMORY ,with symbian when you install a symbian application or java application for the phone you can install it to the memory card or internal memory ,most symbian phones has 10 mb of internal memory ,
if you have 20 applications openning from the memory card it will be slow to access to menu gallery ....you can install every important applications like e-mail , skype , internet browser , mobile tv, launchers , themes , multimedia application s ,so whe you have 3 or 4 things running at the same time the memory card loading time will be FAST
this phone is meant to be fast if you know SYMBIAN for at least 1 yeare and you do not like this phone please let us know

I somehow managed to get my hands on this new Nokia E61 mobile phone and I also extended its memory to 2gb because I loved its design and features. The phone has a number of good things, but bads are heavier then goods, so finally I have decided to send it back to my service provider, as it is still in cooling off period.
The design of the phone is great!
The material used for the body looks and feels great!
The keyboard is great, soft keys and typing is extremely easy, unless you really want to make a mistake :)
The screen is pretty good, icons, display design, color scheme of original nokia theme is great!
Features are good and quite useful!
Now the Bads:
Twice in three days my phone was hang, even the power off button did not work, so I had to open the back cover, take the battery out and put it back in.
About 5 or 6 times in three days the phone was just hang, thankfully the power button was working so I had to switch it off and back on.
About 2 or 3 times the phone was restarted by itself while I was typing email or text msg.
The menus design in the phone is a bit confusing but obviously you get used to it after a while.
Quite frequently the phones shows an error msg that “it is running out of memory please close other applications”, while no other applications are at all running.
Just got a question.Is there any GSM PDA that can be used for online banking.
Very slow processor! tried it out on a brand new device today, and navigation is too much without touch screen!
I think this is one the best business phones introduced by nokia, lighter in weight, user friendly and the performance is excellent. You cant compare the Nokia E61 with other nokia phones as this is called a business phone.
black berry users do not have cameras on theres hand heald devise
a busness man has a car and a digital camera for pictures
wlan i.e.g excellent
the e61 sucks without a camera
i hate nokia they have not been making good phones lately :(
vodafone uk stores got them in today, seems pretty nice, screen doesn't seem like 16M colours but when you're browsing it renders the pages well. Browsing is nice and quick too :)
I can't belive it hasn't any kind of camera. For the price any Sony Ericsson of the "W" series are much better. Even the Treo 600 is much better.
I totally agree that this is a busyness phone, If I want to take a picture I only have to get my digital camera. This is a great phone for what I need (in my case) if you need a camera phone, there are too many other models with camera
