My latest gadget — Nokia E61

e61.jpgCouldn’t help it. I had to. My current phone is so OLD…it’s been with me now for about 20 months. Plus I had the $%&# Treo reboot just one too many times during a call last week.

I was way past due to upgrade. I’ve been watching the E61 since it was announced last fall. I confess: I just broke down and had to “import” it myself before it makes it to the states.

I’m sure you’ll be getting my full review once I’ve had a second to transition from my Treo. Can’t wait to play with the WiFi support and SIP client to make VOiP calls at Starbucks as if I were at my desk — mobility rules!
