Review: Samsung Galaxy Note for AT&T
AT&T did not take it easy with the Galaxy Note. There are a number of AT&T-branded apps on board, which include AT&T Code Scanner, AT&T Family Map, AT&T TV, myAT&T, AT&T Navigator, and YPmobile. Some can be deleted and some cannot. Others are just links to the Android Market. Add these to the Samsung-branded apps, and you have plenty to choose from before you even open the Android Market.Bluetooth
The Galaxy Note supports mono/stereo Bluetooth headsets. Pairing and connecting was no problem, and sound quality through both was very good in my car. The same goes for pairing with PCs and other devices to pass files back and forth.Clock
The Galaxy Note's lock screen has a large digital clock at the top. The font is a bit on the thin side, but the sheer size makes it easy to read. There's also a clock application if you're interested in using a stopwatch, timer, setting alarms, etc. This app doesn't have any effect on the lock screen clock, though.

The Galaxy Note includes Google Maps and AT&T Navigator. Both do an admirable job of providing navigation, though AT&T's software is a bit more reliable and faster to respond to real-time situations. Sadly, it costs $10 per month to use. Google Maps is a respectable free alternative.
