Submission + - Smartphones: the new home of crapware (pcpro.co.uk)

Barence writes: "Smartphones are replacing PCs as the new breeding ground for pre-installed crapware, argues PC Pro's Mike Jennings. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro, for example, comes pre-loaded with McAfee security software and other associated apps, four different app stores, and a selection of games and other media management tools. "And it’s not like you can just get rid of this software, either — most of it’s there to stay, with hard-coded blocks in place to ensure you don’t uninstall any of the tat you don’t want," PC Pro adds."
