The Inspire 4G has access to all the same applications that other Android handsets do via the Android Market. Now that Google has launched the Android Market web store, it will be even easier to find and install applications on the Inspire 4G. It is worth pointing out, however, that the Inspire 4G can not install off-market apps. This is a limitation across all AT&T-branded Android phones. It means no beta versions. Speaking of AT&T, the Inspire 4G is littered with AT&T apps, such as AT&T Family Map, AT&T Code Scanner, AT&T Navigator, MyAT&T, etc. These apps can't be removed.


I didn't have a single problem using the Inspire 4G's Bluetooth features. I paired it to mono and stereo headsets with no problems. Call quality through a mono headset was excellent, and music quality through stereo headphones was very good. I was also able to pair with my PCs for file sharing.


HTC + Sense + Android = best ever set of options for a smartphone clock. The Inspire 4G easily replaces a wrist watch, stop watch, egg timer, world clocks and pretty much any other timepiece you may have around (OK, except for maybe that antique cuckoo-clock).

The Inspire has both Google Maps 5.1 and AT&T Navigation on board. Both are capable navigation applications. AT&T's nav app costs $10 per month to use; Google Maps is free.
