AT&T Bundles Windows Phone 7 With Bloatware

If there was ever any doubt that the carriers would find a way to ruin your brand spanking new WP7 phone, here’s the proof: AT&T has installed its own crappy apps on their WP7 handsets. Luckily, you can delete them like any other app (unlike some on Android which are harder to kill than cockroaches), but they’ll come back if you do a factory reset.

Call me cynical, but these bundled apps are utterly useless 90% of the time (though myWireless is very handy for keeping track of your usage). Generally, there’s a better, less bloated, and more efficient app available without having to rely on the carrier’s offering.
