Though the Nokia E71x launched on May 4th and is available at most AT&T stores, several Nokia S60 power-users have expressed their disappointment in the lack of customization options, particularly when its unlocked brother offers much more. Matthew over at Nokia Experts has offered some great tips that will make the device even better. If you follow his Twitter feed, you've seen his dissatisfaction with the device in the days since the launch in comparison to the unlocked Nokia E71:
"Can't install Nokia Podcasting on E71x. That alone is enough for me to personally return the device. I use this app daily on my commute"
"Share Online (from beta labs) does not work. Emoze doesn't appear to work. E71x is NOT a power user device :("
His article is split into four categories: 'Customizing the menu layout,' 'Installing helpful applications,' 'What else do I want?,' and 'The E71x is worth $100.' At $99.99 after mail-in rebate, the svelte device is expected to sell well, so the tips and tricks list will certainly come in handy for anyone considering the device.
