Review: LG Nitro HD for AT&T
The Nitro HD has plenty of applications installed out of the box. It includes the typical AT&T-branded stuff, as well as a few other odds and ends. I was able to delete most of the apps I didn't want, but a few were undeletable, such as Google Maps and Google Talk. You know the drill with the Android Market. It's there. It has apps. You can download them.
Bluetooth worked without issue on the Nitro HD. Pairing with mono and stereo headsets, as well as PCs and other phones, was a snap. Sound quality of voice calls through mono headsets was godawful. Music sounded acceptable through stereo Bluetooth speakers.
The Nitro HD offers the same lockscreen clock that most Android phones do. When initially woken from sleep, it shows the time in a larger, digital read out. The time can be gleaned with but a glance. Sadly, LG didn't do anything to customize the lock screen. The Nitro HD also has the typical Android alarm/clock app.

Google Maps and TeleNav Navigator — masquerading under the name "AT&T Navigator" — are both installed on the Nitro HD. Google Maps is free and AT&T Navigator costs $10 per month to use. Both apps do a fine job of providing directions to and from destinations.
