Verizon, The Galaxy Nexus, and Bloatware


More from Steve Kovach Verizon Is Going To Ruin The Best Part Of The Galaxy Nexus:

Google released a bunch of videosyesterday showing off the best features of the upcoming Galaxy Nexus andAndroidIce Cream Sandwich.

As an added bonus they give us a look at the Verizon LTE model that is due to hit the U.S. later this month.

But after watching the videos, I noticed something really disturbing. Verizon appears to be forcing bloatware like My Verizon Mobile and Verizon Backup Assistant onto the Galaxy Nexus.

That's awful. The beauty of Google's Nexus phones is that they're supposed to be pure Android. No bloatware, crapware, skins, or any other add-ons from carriers or manufactures. Just Android.

It's the same approach Apple takes with the iPhone and it's one of the biggest advantages iOS has over most Android phones.
