I'm finding the Nokia Email app to be surprisingly nice. It is not anything close to what the Blackberry email experience though. If email is your primary use for the phone, stay with BB. The E71 is a very well rounded phone, that's for sure though. So far (1 day), I've got an app that lets me create a wifi hotspot so I can use my laptop or iPod Touch while out and about...no cables, a native Adobe PDF app, and a killer Twitter app called Gravity. I do miss Pandora though!
