The e680 uses a WAP browser for accessing the internet. Although it is a device that could benefit from a Opera browser like the one used on its big brother the a780, my unit only had the pre-installed WAP browser.. I am sure that a HTML browser could be used from the a780 on this device as well.

Bluetooth transfer between my laptop and other devices was uneventful. Nothing was ever a problem with the e680, I found its bluetooth performance with my BlueSpoon Digital to be very easy to use with the e680 supporting both the headset and handsfree profiles. It transferred large video files easily as well as Mp3 and jpeg files.

The e680 was very easy to use as a WAP enabled device for accessing the internet. Its large beautiful screen made viewing WAP sites fun and entertaining. Sending and receiving email and MMS was equally simple and satisfying. The Linux OS really does a good job in these areas, and I did not find the menus or layout wierd or hard to understand. Touch screen input with the stylus was positive and responsive with no lag or mistaken input.
