Default Apps that work?

My 1st post here, hope to pick up a 5.0 at BB on sale this Friday. I hope to move to it from my Optimus-V (its screen is too small for these old eyes). Seems that this "mini"-tablet, and a cheap pay as you go phone would be an ideal combo to carry around. I am very happy with many apps on my phone, and just wanted to be sure they worked on this "player".

GrooveIP (for phone calls)
Go Launcher (in case I don't like default one)
Boat Browser (I like this browser)
Google Voice (for SMS, and working with GrooveIP)
K9 Mail
Multi Purpose Live WP

If these all work, I know all my other fav's will work, but these are essential. Thanks for any helpful feedback!

All of those apps are compatible with the Galaxy player, though I'm not sure what you're refering to with the last one (never heard of it). I haven't been able to get GrooveIP to work consistently, though, especially after the Gingerbread update. I haven't tried it lately. Some people on other forums say they have no problems using it on the player, so perhaps it depends on your ISP, network set-up, etc. as to how well it works.

Thanks! I stopped by BB to look at one and was amazed at the quality and screen size. Definately getting one on Friday (if I can hold out that long). It's about 10 steps up from my Optimus-V (and only 1 step down because it's not a real phone).

Multi Picture Live Wallpaper is a Wallpaper that lets you put a different image on each screen, I'm sure it will work on SGP. I was most concerned about GrooveIP, on wifi it's never an issue, and that's all I need it for.
