+ - Vodafone Backs Down In Row With Android Users->

Vodafone has backed down in the face of angry opposition from Google Android customers, who last week received a software update thinking it contained Android 2.2, but instead found it contained Vodafone’s branded 360 service.

The Vodafone 360 service was launched in October last year. Essentially, Vodafone 360 is a user interface that puts social networking on the front screen of the phone, and arranges the users’ contacts so you can reach any person with a phone call, IM, text or other call — or send a location message to meet up.

However it also installs irremovable Vodafone-branded apps and bookmarks, including links to dating sites."
