How to Use Email and Phone on the Nexus One


We continue our in-depth look at the Nexus One Google Phone with a look at the email and phone applications on the Nexus One. While the Android Market gets all the buzz (we'll get to that in our next episode), the Nexus One is, first and foremost, a communications device. We'll walk through how to set up email, contacts and how to use the phone application in this instalment of our Nexus One video tutorial series.

How to Use Email and Phone on the Nexus One Hi, this is Andrew Moore Crispin with your 10-part tutorial series on the Nexus one also known as the Google phone and today we’re going to take a look at the phone dialing application as well as the email application. So we here there is a Greek pattern icon on the home screen. If we tap that we get a list of all the installed applications. Now this is the default applications. We haven’t actually installed it yet. Now we’ll see here this is a Gmail application as well as an email application. This may seem redundant. Email is basically email address doesn’t end in In this case, we’re just going to use the Gmail app. We’re going to assume that already have a Google account and thus you already a Gmail account and we do actually prefer the Gmail application over the email application. So we here we’re presented with a view of our inbox. We can scroll up and down of course by sliding our finger. Now you can touch the soft keys at the bottom, if we touch the menu soft key we can get some contact’s specific actions. We can refresh our inbox. We can choose to compose a mail. We can also access different accounts or add a new account. We can view the labels that we have. We can search our inbox and we can also drill into some settings. So you can just choose to compose. Now presented with a “To,” we put it in the address that we want to compose the mail to, put in the subject and put in the body here, pretty simple stuff. So go back by hitting the back soft key. Now if I were to go into let’s see. This is Michael Goldberg telling me that there at content from CES ready. Now if I tap on the menu soft key here we get a few more options and different options. I can add a star to this conversation to mark that it’s important. I can move up in the inbox to see a newer email. I can change the label that is associated with this, go back to the inbox. I can also get more options or mark this email even though I'm reading it now, mark it as unread. So we’re not going to bother with that need right now but we’ll go in and have a quick look at the phone dialing application. Now this might look like when you tap, it’s going to bring up the phone dialing. Many people make that mistake. I made that mistake myself but that actually work that way. You actually have to hit the phone icon here and now we see just a simple phone dialing or obviously touch sensitive so you can go start dialing your number there. We can also see our call log. We haven’t made any calls on here so the call logs is going to be empty but we’d see a long list of everyone that we’ve called or who called us along with the date and time. You can see our contacts here. Now this brings up a good point. You can see my contacts here a little bit on this. We’re only just getting into the business now and that’s because the application does actually bring over all of our contacts from our Gmail account so it might be a good idea to call the contacts that you have in your Gmail account before you actually sign it up to the Google phone. We can also see our favorites apparently on my own favorite which is nice, you know. So that is quick look at the email and phone dialing applications on the Nexus one also known as the Google phone and that concludes this installment of our Nexus one tutorial series.
