It's been a long time this phone has been on the market, 2 years as of this writing, but it still competes well against current phones - sharing much of its hardware with the current Blackberry-styled E-series phone, the Nokia E61i.
Sporting quadband (850, 900, 1800, 1900) GSM and WCDMA 2100 support, a QWERTY keyboard, and large 2.8 inch screen, the Nokia E61 is a great phone if you're looking for a alternative to Blackberry and Windows Mobile:
Initial impressions are very good with a tight joystick control, relatively thin at the bottom (but a tad too thick at the top), an impressively bright and large 2.8 inch screen, and large battery. The back battery cover creeked so I placed a piece of paper napkin under it and that removed the creek. Nokia should have put some rubber behind the battery cover.
Stay tuned for a full review of the Nokia E61!
