    Also.
    It turns out you cannot add tractor tyres to a Fiat 500 to go off-roading!

    Yet more mind blowing news: apparently the iPad won't sychronise with my fishtank, even after the 4.2 update. Clearly the iPad isn't fit for purpose.

    But the E71 is good for one thing...

    I've used my E71 for a portable Wifi hotspot (using the Joikuspot app) with my 32GB Wifi iPad. Works great. Seriously doubt there is any way to use the E71's video camera for skype through the iPad.

    However, why not just skype with the E71 itself? See http://forum.skype.com/index.php?showtopic=220011. Supposedly, both Fring and Skype for Symbian can do Skype directly from the E71. See Skype for Symbian at http://www.skype.com/intl/en/get-skype/on-your-mobile/download/skype-for-symbian/.
