I considered the E61 so I went to one of those import stores that sold flashy phones that weren't carrier supported. I liked the fact that the E61 offered expandable memory and wifi (2 things I wish my BlackBerry did) but after doing some research I passed on the E61. I found out that BlackBerry connect is for email only and does not offer pinning which is something my office uses quite often. I tried sending an email or two from the store owner (who was a E61 user) from his email to my BlackBerry and I didn't like the keys on the E61 and I wasn't a fan of the joystick. I found it uncomfortable. I am not well experienced with the E61 but my brief time with it made me realize nothing beats a BlackBerry for email and if I want things like expandable memory I'll just have to wait for the next generation of BlackBerries. If you opt for the E61 setting up your email should be a breeze. The store owner I spoke to said it took him less than 15minutes to set up his email accounts and get his E61 up and running. If you're running BlackBerry connect then you should get your email right away.
