I've just discovered to my dismay that the A701 doesn't have AKU2, so no push email etc.
There was a 1 1/2 hr podcast on Msmobiles, talking with some of the guys at mio (pronounced with a short "i"
) and they said there are some issues with it at the moment but they are working on it. It will come. I'm less concerned about push email than A2DP. They also said there is an edge enabled A701 to come out by the end of the year, or something along those lines.
