    Interesting (but unsurprising - it had been widely leaked) that the communicators are now S60, but personally I've never been much of a fan of that form factor. I'd like to see the E61i specs, although improvements will probably be a little too incremental to tempt me to part with the E61.

    Everyone seems to wonder why Nokia doesn't do as well in the U.S. But they keep bringing out new models without U.S. frequencies. Nice devices but without U.S. frequencies support, they won't make any difference in the U.S.
    Main Phone: Treo 270/600/650/700w/700p/750v/Motorola Q/iPhone
    Tried but sold: Motorola Q/Nokia E61/700wx/HTC TyTN/Treo 680

    I guess at some point they did a calculation that said the return wasn't worth the investment. I thought it might all change with the new flagship stores signalling intent in the US, but there doesn't seem to anything from 3GSM to suggest they'll start supporting US 3G frequencies. US versions of the E61i, E65 and E90 could be in the works of course and only time will tell. It does seem a little hard on you guys that you're effectively cut off from the best devices from the world's number one (in terms of sales) smartphone maker.

    Yeah - looks too marginal for me as well (fellow e61 user) - must say, I like the look of that e90... (wonders how he can work it into a department budget...)

    Sure won't be cheap but it's a very powerful device (HSDPA, quality GPS, tons of RAM, USB2, BT2, 802.11g, 3.2 Mpix camera, FM radio) and with a 800x352 screen and a fair-sized keyboard it could replace a laptop in many more circumstances than most smartphones. Doubt I could live with the size, weight and clamshell form factor though (even if the 240x320 screen on the front would help with the latter). Pity they didn't throw some more of those specs at the E61i.

    Looks like the E90 at least might have US 3G bands:

    Works for me!

    I'd like to see both Nokia and SE put out US 3G phones! Their designs are great, but we can't use them to our full potential. The SE K810i was just released with no US 3G band again! The K790/800 is a popular SE design.

    Still waiting on the N75. It is triband UMTS.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!
