PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's time for another phone review. PureMobile.com sent us the Nokia E71 for review. The E71 is a BlackBerry-style phone, with a full qwerty keyboard in a candybar form factor, meaning the E71 is direct competition for the phone we reviewed in October, the BlackBerry Bold 9000. Read on for our findings.

Great hardware, not so great software

I bought an E71 a few months ago myself and while the hardware is great the software (S60) is far from it IMHO (inconsistent shortcuts, you can't save files that you transfered via bluetooth to the file system, brain dead calendar that supports neither multiple calendars or categories, picky syncml implementation, ...).

Otherwise, I fully agree with your conclusion.

btw. you can close applications in the task-manager with the backspace button.

I can save the files received via bluetooth into the filesystem. What kind of files you are trying to save?

How do you do that? The only filetype I manage to copy where I want is .ZIP because the standard application for .ZIP files lets me do that once I open the file. For everything else (.jars, .dict files, ...) I have yet to find a way.
