The ‘Berry-esque Nokia E61 is slated for arrival in a matter of days! Its fast EDGE and 3G data connections will make a lot of people happy, and this is the first S60 device to deviate from the one-handed smartphone design of previous S60 handsets.
It is unlikely that iSync will work with this device when it gets released; most of the new SyncML devices require more than a little hacking to get them syncing up against a Mac, but I’ll probably be keeping my eyes closely glued to the E61 and the iSync supported devices page.
Not that I’m unhappy with my P910 or anything, but I’m getting tired of waiting for the P990. The E61 is coming up on MobileBee for a bargain price of USD$500 unlocked and unbranded. If a US operator like Cingular or T-Mobile carries it, expect a discount to around $300 with a new contract.
Thanks, MobileTracker, you made my day!

  1. Remember that the Nokia E61 is a Symbian 9.1 Series 60 device. Apple already has a couple of S60 connection applications for iSync, so it’s entirely possible that while we wait for Apple’s official support for the E61, one of the other S60 applications can be installed on this device, and some plist fudging will make it appear. 🙂
