In addition, both Galaxy Players support numerous multimedia formats including DivX, Xvid, WMV, MPEG4, H.264, MP3, WMA, AAC, Ogg, and Flac.

Drag 'N Play support means files can be simply dragged from a PC right onto the player ? no need for installing special software of any kind on the PC. A MicroSD slot allows 32 GB of extra storage, supplementing the on-board 8 GB.

Galaxy Players are DLNA Certified and support AllShare ? so content can be streamed to and from a PC or television without wires ? anywhere in the home.

The two Galaxy Player devices are the only Mobile Internet Devices with Google certification ? so they can access Android applications via Google?s Android Market.

Both devices run Android version 2.2 (Froyo) and will be upgradeable to version 2.3 (Gingerbread).
