That will most likely change after a quick update. They call it "oversight".....we call it a "glitch"

Who cares. You would have to be an idiot to get one of these new snapdragon chipsets if your lookingfor a nice dual core phone. I thought people looking for a dual core wanted up to date tech, not last years tech with moded A-8 cores that qualcomm is trying to pass off as this years big thing.

yawn, the more power they have the more they will use it. if they had pure android gingerbread on this, they would never make more money because this phone would fly. they smash sense and plenty of apps and widgets and the phone will be fast and lag a little, next model take off some apps and BLAM! Next best thing, til they make it faster

Surprisingly, the same can be done on the Atrix.

@ guest...first of all who gives a s**t everything we get in the states is old or outdated technology! the phone is still very smooth and fast. it will be put to the real test when it gets ice cream sandwich.

Don't worry, HTC/Sprint has fixed this function... ie, you can no longer delete bloatware. Stock Widget, there forever now. Peep, that gonna stay... and a mighty FU to us users.
