Vodafone Caves to Demand, Rolling Froyo Out in “Seven to Ten Days” Sans Bloatware
The masses have spoken. Last week Vodafone pushed out an update to their Desire handset and anxious subscribers gobbled it up, assuming it was Android 2.2. Instead, it was a modified version of Android 2.1 replete with a bunch of Vodafone 360 branded apps and services. Needless to say, people got slightly mad. So they took to their complaints direct the carrier’s front door. Folding under mounting pressure, Vodafone has decided to adopt a different strategy going forward. At some point over the next week or two, the carrier will roll out the actual Froyo update with a stock Sense experience. Should a customer decide they want the Vodafone 360 content, they will be able to download it from the provider.
Can you picture a carrier from the U.S. caving to pressure like this? Which phone(s) do you think are the worst bloatware offender?
