Review: Motorola i886
The i886 offers an unmolested version of the basic Android music player application. The user interface and behavior are identical to what we've seen on Android handsets for years. The i886 offers no new features to speak of, but does offer the same ones you'd see on an Android device (party shuffle, use as ringtone, etc.)
One odd bit of behavior: if you start playback, the default action is to play music through the earpiece speaker. You have to push the speakerphone button to get the music to pump through the speaker. Of course, you can also listen via Bluetooth or with your favorite set of headphones with the 3.5mm headset jack.

There's no native video player that I could find, and the music player won't play video files. Sprint's NASCAR and Football applications are both on board, but because the i886 relies on iDEN for its network connection, these apps are worthless. The NASCAR app wouldn't load at all, and the NFL app loaded, but then wouldn't play anything. Why Sprint even bothered loading them I can't say. You won't find a YouTube app, either.
