Come on T-mobile 'GET IT RIGHT'

Further to my last post there has been an update to the pages that I mentioned!
But they are still maintaining that the E51 has a built in GPS receiver!
So please put it right.
You are a right shower!

E51 has built in GPS - NOT!

As of today (and for at least the last four weeks) T-mobile UK (http://www.t-mobile.co.uk/shop/mobile-phones/phones/pay-monthly/all/4/) are advertising an E51 ( http://www.t-mobile.co.uk/shop/mobile-phones/phones/pay-monthly/nokia/e51/overview/) and an E51 with Copilot (http://www.t-mobile.co.uk/shop/mobile-phones/phones/pay-monthly/nokia/e51-copilot/overview/) as having a built in GPS receiver. Check under View Details and then phone features/connectivity.
This is obviously incorrect and very misleading.
T-mobile have been informed about this repeatedly and have done nothing about it.
I am a BIG fan of T-mobile, however, I will give them 'stick' when it is deserved.
And in this case it is deserved for being so calcitrant about their obligations to their customers (current or future).
So if you have an E51 from T-mobile give 'em a call and kick up stink for misselling and failing to rectify their mistake.
I will reveal shortly what they gave me as a gesture of goodwill.

Is the Nokia E51 really as good as I think it is?

I've had lots of experience with the N95 and like it a lot.
And now comes along this little sucker (the E51) and I love it!
It reminds me a lot of the old 6210 - solid build and feels good in the hand.
It has an excellent feature set and truely compliments the N95.
I had it set up as I want it in minutes (as it's the same OS as the N95) and it is a pleasure to take it out and use it.
All my favourite S60 apps work with it and the only thing missing is GPS!
Surprisingly the screen resolution is fine to work with even Google maps looks good.
So what do others think?
