Review: Samsung Gravity Smart
The Gravity Smart uses the same, drab, boring music player that's on nearly all Android devices. Samsung did nothing to make it fun to use. Side-load your music via a PC and the microUSB port (or directly onto the microSD card itself) and the Gravity Smart will find your tunes and play them back with no problem.
