    I am considering the Nokia E61 as a PDA/phone (unreleased to US wireless companies as far as I know)

    Its extremely thin, and stylish, has a full QWERTY, WiFi, Bluetooth, and works with most cell phone providers in the US. The price tag (~$350 on ebay) seems right, especially when compared to the $400 to $600 range for the latest Treo's, MDAs, etc. However, it runs the Symbian OS 9.1 .

    Would this phone be useless in the medical field? I know from posts, that many of the best med-programs out there only run on windows or palm, but are there enough programs running on symbian to make it worthwhile and useful? I searched for, and read some posts from last year regarding symbian, but i don't know if things are changing yet, in terms of software compatibility. Any input?

    I would recommend the Cingular 8125 Pocket PC. It's the best one out there.

    Other phone companies have clones of this model.
