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.

A revelation...

Compared with the Treo 750 I moved from. Never been that keen on the Nokia interface but after 2+ years of WM6.0 I changed my mind. Its quick, hasn't crashed yet, and hasn't needed a reboot in the two months I've been using it. The browser is also good compared with IE on WM6.0. Only thing I miss is VPN/PPTP support as far as I can see.

I have the very same problem, plus with all VoIP/Skype blocked in the Middle East, it's costing me money, since I can't bypass those blocks. I really need a VPN app thats works wither with PPTP or OpenVPN, only IPsec VPNs works with the Nokia VPN client.

SymVPN 1.00 for S60 3rd edition, came out recently, it didn't work in my case at all, because my VPN provider runs its PPTP servers on FreeBSD. Maybe it'll help you out...
