I’ve been a huge fan of the active standby screen in the recent S60 devices (that’s the ‘default’ screen that you see on your phone when it’s doing nothing else, which includes appointments, inbox items, todos, some shortcut icons for apps and actions, etc). It was a great feature on the 6680, but it’s astounding on the E61 with the extra screen space. Here’s a shot of my active standby this morning (the blurred items are calendar entries):
There’s a great writeup over at All About Symbian with some really detailed info about using the E61 Active Standby screen.
I did the screen capture with Screenshot from Antony Pranata, which works fantastic on the E61. I set it to capture using “Edit+*”, which on the E61 is shift and the “u” key on the keyboard.
