yes! I love this sort of news Is it safe to assume they'll remove that horrific "Apps" app that always needs to run in the background on my phone 24/7?
From a end-user experience standpoint, why would you want to confuse customers with pre-installing so many competing apps? MOG music, Slacker, Play Music, wtf is all that? My Maxx reminds me of those old E-machines with their endless bloat. Say what you want about Apple, but at least they've got their shit together by standing up to network operator's sleazy tactics. I personally enjoy the complexity and utility of Android but Verizon shoveling all their garbage and logos all over my phone is an obvious attempt at a cheap cash grab. Wait and see, I'm sure their marketing team are busy as beavers trying to concoct a new vcast App store removal surcharge.
Imagine if Comcast required you to put a sticker of their logo on the side of your computer. haha
