The built-in PIM apps are primitive in the extreme: it's astonishing 
that anyone could have felt they were releasable, but Nokia conceived of 
the device as a web tablet instead of a PDA or even just a pocket computer.

I use the GPE ones and they're OK but of course they don't mesh with the 
rest of the device, which assumes you're using the built-in ones. It may 
be possible to change the behaviour but it's not a show-stopper.

Otherwise it does pretty much everything my laptop did.
