One thing carriers love doing is overloading their new handsets with what has affectionately been dubbed bloatware. This pre-installed software often takes up a lot of precious storage on your new handset and even more often sits collecting virtual dust in your app drawer. This is especially true for game demos, which become useless unless you are willing to pony up the cash for the full version. The removal of this mandated software is often accomplished through rooting the Android handset, but in a rare instance the new Motorola DROID X2 has been blessed with pre-loaded app that can be uninstalled.
OK, so not all of the junk that came on the X2 can be given the wave goodbye. Blockbuster, Slacker, and all your VCAST apps are there to stay, but those pesky game demos can be taken care of in quick order. Good to know if you ever need to free up some space (or if you just want to flip VeeZeeDub the virtual bird).
