What's on my Nokia 7610 and can Series 60 meet my needs?

Now that I am back to a 2 device solution I have been really exploring the Nokia 7610 and understanding how powerful of a device it actually is. Battery life is outstanding, the 1.3 megapixel camera takes great photos, I can actually hear the alarms and can easily use MP3 files as my alarms, the Calendar is very good with daily appointments popping up in the month view when I switch to each day, Opera 8 rocks of course, and Bluetooth works flawlessly with headsets, other PDAs, my Tablet, and DriveBlue speakerphone. I haven’t been that impressed with the default email client, but just discovered ProfiMail that actually allows me to check my Gmail account and will probably be purchasing it shortly. Other applications I have loaded include Mobipocket Reader, RepliGo, SplashPhoto, the Stowaway keyboad driver, several PDAmill games, and Handmark Express. As I said a couple years ago, I could easily get by with just a Series 60 device and now that I am easing up on my mobile device purchases I am finding that the Series 60 device is an excellent mobile platform.

    I am currently looking at going with the same mobile setup as you are using: a Dell x50v paired with a Nokia phone. I have been using a Treo 650 (on Sprint) for a few months now, but there have been many times where I found that the Treo was just too big for me.

    As soon as I get my Treo sold, I will probably be picking up a 7610, or more likely a 6620. There are a lot of neat apps available for the Symbian OS. In addition to the ones you mentioned, there are now Symbian versions of eReader, (formerly Palm Reader) and HanDBase. I have used both of those programs on my Palm and my PPC devices.

    I just submitted a blurb about HanDBase (funny that you brought it up) for Geek.com. I didn’t know about eReader and will have to check that out.

    I heard the 6620 is a good phone too and only have the 7610 because Nokia was kind enough to send it my way to use for review purposes.
