Deutsche Telekom letting users choose “pre-installed” apps
In a blog post, the carrier says that it will now suggest apps for users to install either as they are first setting up a new phone or just afterwards. A widget containing suggested applications from the company will be placed on the home screen.
Telekom implies that its decision to lighten up on firmware customizations will allow quick software updates direct from the manufacturer and leave users with less hassle, not having to uninstall pre-installed apps. This policy appears to only apply to German customers for now.
