Review: Kyocera Milano for Sprint

Form Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  2  

Menus Calls/Contacts Messaging  

The Milano includes only the most essential communications tools. It runs all the stock Android 2.3 Gingerbread messaging applications, and doesn't offer anything new, not even from the Sprint ID packs.

It has the generic email app for POP/IMAP/Exchange email, and the dedicated Gmail application for Google users. Both of these applications are capable and time-tested.

The stock SMS/MMS app is loaded on the Milano, and I didn't notice any different or unusual behavior with it. It offers threaded conversations, as always.

As for IM, the Milano has GTalk on board, and nothing else. If you use Yahoo, Windows Live or AIM, you'll have to seek out third-party apps from the Android Market.

On the social networking front, the Milano is one of the most anemically equipped devices I've seen in a long time. It has zero social networking apps or services on board. You have to do all the heavy lifting and download them yourself if you want to be social. Of course, there are plenty of apps available in the Android Market for social networking, including core apps like Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
