Posted from my new Nokia E61

Currently at home, using my Nokia E61 to post to my blog using the standard Blogware web interface, via my Dad's wifi. Nice!

The E61 is a very stylish thing. My experience of both Wifi and browsing has been generally positive – when I bought it, I assumed that I would have to install Opera Mini to get a decent browser – in fact, I discovered that the bundled Web browser is better than Opera.
The only frustration is that opening links from within email messages uses the basic Services browser rather than the decent one. Deeply silly, and having read about it online, for example http://discussions.europe.nokia.com/discussions/board/message?board.id=messaging&message.id=2773, it seems that there is no way of changing this.

Very cool indeed. Did you end up with T-Mobile or sticking with Orange? I wasted a good few hours the other week trying to do a decent comparison of the data charges for the different mobile providers. Roll on the day that data gets included in all the comparison tables along with talk time and SMS.

Indeed. Going further, it'd be lovely if networks viewed data as something that could be included in at least some of their regular service packages alongside voice minutes and SMS, rather than as a (relatively expensive) optional extra.

I'm having the same problem with clicking on links, yes.
i ended up on O2 because they were the only provider that carphone warehouse had this phone with. However the tariff is about the same as i'm on now except i get more mins and lots mre data, so i'm happy.

I totally agree and Orange do, I think, but only if you pay about £75 a month. Way out of my price range!

Suw, will you post a picture of the new device, perhaps in one of your mum's iPod socks? ;-)
