Review: Motorola i886
Making calls from the i886 is much like making calls from an Android phone with the added bonus of a real dialpad. The software dialpad that appears on the display of most Android phones is simply gone, but the other three tabs (History, Contacts, Favorites) remain. Perhaps the biggest change is the addition of DirectConnect items to the i886's calling menu. Other than that, it offers all the same tools found in Android, including adding lines to the call, sending it to Bluetooth, etc.
No real change here in the behavior and/or function of the contacts application compared to Android, but Gmail users will need to do a little extra work. In order to sync Gmail contacts to the i886, you have to set up Gmail as an Exchange account. Once you do so, the i886 will import all your Gmail contacts. (Be warned, the first sync is going to take about an hour!) After that, it is smooth sailing.
