Apps

The Rezound can access all of the apps in the Android Market and more. Support for Android is not lacking. If you want apps, they are out there. One thing that stinks, though, is that Verizon Wireless has installed tons of bloatware on the Rezound. Some of it can be un-installed, and some of it cannot.

Bluetooth

The Rezound can connect with mono and stereo headsets with no problems. I didn't encounter any issues when pairing different devices, and sound quality through both mono and stereo headsets was quite good. The Rezound can also be used to push pictures (and other files) between devices, such as PCs or other phones.

Clock

When you wake the Rezound from sleep, the time is easy to find and read. There are a host of different digital and analog clock faces from which users can pick. Every clock-related function you can think of is packed in HTC's clock application, such as stopwatch, countdown timer alarms, world clocks, etc. The weather is thrown in for good measure. It looks classy and is a breeze to use.

GPS

Both VZNavigator and Google Maps are installed on the Rezound out of the box. Both offer voice-guided turn-by-turn directions between points, and can re-route you if you get lost. Google Maps 5.0 is particularly impressive because it now offers offline use (in case you roam out of network coverage) as well as 3D maps for a limited number of cities. The VZNavigator software is very good, but it costs $10 per month to use.
