Co-incidently I just got an e65 on Monday and installed puTTY. I also
have a PCMCIA HSPDA data card from same operator with flat rate data
SIM. If I'm doing more than a minute, then I use WiFi or swap the SIM
from the data card (can't make phone calls on it).
I've a Linksys WAN router with ethernet WAN and PCMCIA slot too. I shall
investigate a battery pack as it can work the 3G cards or the newer
Flash-OFDM (digiweb) card using OpenWRT, Ivan Klimek in Slovakia helped
get the Linux Flash-OFDM drivers going on it. Though battery consumption
on E65 with WiFi is harsh. Nice for BBC R4 or Worldservice though.
