Regarding my post of 701 as replacement for E6.
I am using Mobile documents for one email accont and 2 other with the built in email and coming next for calender events.
Pictures here for the widgets of Mobile documents, 2 email accounts and coming next.
How about the forthcoming Nokia Asha 302?

Thanks, but me for example need a full qwerty keyboard. For my 2nd SIM there could be a touchscreen smartphone like 701 or lumia but not for my main SIM.(-or even better an Android device)
But why should i buy a new nokia, when my new nokia e6 is totally #%#^$%#^ = 'NOT GOOD ENOUGH to be called Businessphone'?
I spent too much money on that nokia device.. and I think NEVER AGAIN!
Your recommendation of Nokia 701 is well appreciated, but E6 is not even 1 year old yet, I bought mine 4 months ago, so I think spending 300 euros for a new phone every half year makes no sense, in case you are not a millionaire. I would rather spend 600-800eur for iPhone and use it for at least 2 years.
I am now losing my faith in Nokia. This E6 will be my last Nokia phone, If they won't make improvements to Belle.

The Nokia Asha 302 is not an adequate replacement for the E6, in my opinion after having a run through a demo unit.
In my opinion, I feel that the 302 is very 'childish' when I am so used to the functionality of my E6 for the last 6 months.
I was given a Nokia Lumia 800 but was so restricted by the functionality. However, the power issue I faced (switching on!) sent me back to my E6!
Belle is a great update in terms of the totally new format. However, like a number of other users have mentioned, an Email, Calendar and Clock widget on one screen are the minimum expectations for a business device such as this.
As it stands, if Nokia gave me the option to downgrade to Anna, I would downgrade in an instant!
Where is this split screen function you're talkking about?
maybe this has something to do with my phone being stuck on the 0622 update from 12/2011?
Have you tried to do a soft reset?
meny-settings-phone-phone management-fabric resets (something like that)-restore
Back for daily use of E6 again..Belle is overall a huge advantage to Anna regarding speed, stability. Especially the email client is faster and multitaskingwhen for example listening to webradio and reading emails.
The annoying thing is the removal of the webdav client and of course lack of small email icons that showing if email has arrived. It works on Nokia 701 Belle but not on E6. The standard email widget...why so much space inside the widget and why is the name of the email account showed on the widget. what a waste of space.
Furthermore the annoying big widgets that takes more than 50% on the width on the screen. Only 2 rows also on the screen fits. Well, more cosmetic things could be better but overall a huge step forward even for E6.
I certainly would like a follow up E6 with bigger screen.
2,9 inch the possibilty to use landscape mode therefore when watching video for instance.
Of course a updated gpu, cpu and ram would also therefore be more than wellcome but scrrensize to around 2,9-3,00 inch cant be impossible and still have almost the physical format.
I do love the most about E6 and the qwerty is absolute fabolous but for webbing it is simply to small..
And I cannot agree on stability, because quite often the keyboard of my E6 is not responding and slide lock is not working. Tried soft/hard reset and reinstalled the Belle, but no help. There were no such issues with Anna.
Yes, I agree, its like they put effort into getting Belle sorted for the N8 and then just dumped Belle onto the E6, there are so many formatting, integration issues its a joke, even the sign in button for the nokia acct is cut in half by the bottom of the screen, battery life has halved compared to Belle and if this is the best Nokia can do for their "Business Phone" I pity them...
AND why the icons so big on homescreens?? with no option to choose between 2 or 3 sizes, and no way to put them closer together, so instead of getting 12 or so one CAN only get 8, LET ME DECIDE NOKIA!!!
Anna was much more stable, with more homescreen options i.t.o setup and look, now one CAN only have 8 icons, one CANNOT move them closer together to get more on, one CANNOT change size of icons, WHY are icons so big compared to menu??? no sorry, I loved my E6 with Anna but they (Nokia) have thrown the proverbial baby out with the bathwater, taken away the good stuff and added new stuff that a) doesn't work properly (formatting/integration) or b) has taken the option of me being able to set up the look of the phone the WAY I WANT IT away!! No, Belle is a step backward indeed...
True, that is a big problem. I use 3 mail accounts and a calander for work. I also want the musicplayer.. not much room for the other programs.
