Well ladies and gentlemen, I finally broke down and got the new mobile phone. I went over to the local Verizon store on Monday and acquired the Motorola E815. Seriously – the only thing missing is the kitchen sink. I’ve never owned a nicer electronic device that I can recall. Bluetooth works graet under Windows AND Linux actually. I’ve been able to connect to Verizon’s National Access/Express Network with Windows Dial-up networking and using Kinternet in SuSE 9.3 with a little tweaking here and there. I’m working on a full write up of both because I had to piece together many many articles and forum posts to get to this point with it. Overall though – the E815 is a killer phone.
