Great! just what Android users need on their phones. More bloatware that they cannot uninstall from the factory unless rooted!!!

When I got my Android phone the first thing I did was root it grab a stock rom then rip out all the crap listed below before flashing :

AT&T Locker
AT&T Messages
AT&T Drive Mode
AT&T Code Scanner
AT&T Navigator
AT&T Family Map
Featured Apps (more AT&T crap)
Mobile TV (more AT&T crap)
YP Local Search & Gas Prices (more AT&T crap)
Google Play Music
Google Play Books
Google Play Movies

It is bloatware. If users want BBM they can download it from the Playsotre just like everyone else who wanted it did.

The point I am trying to make is that if users want it, they will take it upon themselves download it easily. If users do not want it, they have to root their phones because they cannot uninstall it.
