Hi all,

Well my time with the E71 is now over and it has gone back in it's box and it will not be joining or replacing the E90 after all.

Now don't get me wrong it is a great business device and a worthy successor to the E61 but an E90 beater it isn't.

I really have had no issues with it other than it won't play H.264 Video @23fps and although it does at 15fps this of course results in it being choppy. But it will play H.263 @23fps perfectly and due to the screen size this is still great quality although personally i wouldn't watch anything over 30 mins.

I have just tried out the Music player and the volume and quality of sound is good with my 256kbps AAC tracks and that was even using the supplied headset. I would imagine using your own set with an adapter will produce even better sound.


My one and only compliant with the E71 is something that it took someone else to point out the top of the Keyboard is not flush to the screen. Their is a small gap all the way along the top of it which leaks light but worse IMO will let dust and dirt into the E71.


Could other E71 users confirm theirs are the same or not?

Marc
