The other day I had the opportunity to have a quick look at the Nokia E61 which most people would categorise as a Blackberry type smartphone. I only spent an hour with the E61 which probably doesn't do it justice so we'll just stick to the facts and let the pictures do the talking.
The E61 has a lot going for it with the full keyboard being the most noticeable feature of the phone. For short e-mails this is a godsend, particularly for those people, like myself, will find SMS-ing not the fastest way to communicate. By necessity the keys are small and can lead to typing mistakes especially because the Delete and the Enter key are rather close together. I found the backlit keys excellent to work with.
