  Wifi Roaming on E61
Wow! I occassionally read the user manuals that get posted on the FCC site for upcoming phones. I just spotted the user manual for the E61. Page 69 blew my mind, man:

Email data roaming
Select Menu > Tools > Settings > Connection >
Access point groups.
Your device allows roaming between wireless access
technologies, such as WLAN and GPRS, for e-mail. For
example, you can start an e-mail session at home and
continue the session on your way to work. While your
session continues uninterrupted, your handheld device
switches from WLAN to GPRS and back to WLAN when
you arrive at your workplace.

This is big. First of all, there is a default setting that will cause the device to automatically to roam on wifi when gprs is absent. On WM5, you have to switch manually. That will give greater overall coverage (gprs + wifi) at lower costs and higher speeds.

This implies a seemless handoff. This big trick is not in the Windows Media 5 playbook right now, and could give Symbian a big boost in the OS race -- this function could save a lot of dough for corporate customers with international roamers who don't rack up extra charges roaming on gprs when they could be on low-cost wifi.

I assume this is a basic function of Symbian 9 and not unique to the E61.
