I spent some time yesterday checking out which S60 word processor I’d like to use with my E71. I decided in the end that the answer would be, none.
One huge feature that is missing for me in every single one I tried, is styles. I find it really hard to outline a document without some kind of style library. Is it too much to ask to just have a choice of heading 1, 2, 3 and normal?
It’s a step backwards from my existing mobile word processing experience, the Psion 5mx.
Mind you a lot of stuff is a step backwards from the Psion. Okay yes it has some serious faults nowadays.
- Very unclear screen
- No easy mobile connectivity
- No color
- No decent web experience
But as a word processor for a mobile writer it does many things very well, some that still haven’t been matched.
- Good keyboard for its size
- Functional word processor
- Excellent battery life
Of course correcting lots of the things it does badly would damage the excellent battery life. But still it would be nice if I could have a non-crippled word processor for my E71. Anyone know of one?
