The Galaxy Note offers both the new Google Music application and the older media player. The media player is a generic piece of software that can be used to access and playback media stored on the device. The Google Music application lets you stream your library from Google's servers over the network. It also lets you purchase music from the Android Market.

Music can be played back through attached headphones, or sent via Bluetooth to properly-equipped Bluetooth devices. Sound quality of music playback was quite good.

There are no third-party music applications pre-installed such as Slacker or Pandora, though they are easy to find in the Android Market.

As far as video goes, the Galaxy Note has the stock Android video player application, YouTube application, and AT&T TV & Movies application on board. It also has the Android Market for renting and buying movies. The Note easily handled video content that I side-loaded, and I found the Note great for watching movies thanks to the roomy and vibrant screen.

Media Hub

The Galaxy Note also comes with Samsung's Media Hub. It is sort of like the Blockbuster Android application. Users can access the Media Hub to download movies and television shows on the Note, but not music. Rental fees and sale prices vary by title.

AllShare is on board for those who like to share their multimedia files with DLNA-compatible devices, such as HDTVs.
