This strategy has the exact opposite affect on me. I will NEVER use skype, amazon mp3, city id, or Verizon back-up assistant, since they pre-installed them on my phone, and don't give me the option to remove them!! I get really tired of having to go into running services, and shutting down these unneeded, unwanted apps just so I can cut down on battery usage!
And Verizon, putting Bing as the default search on an Google Android phone is an insult to me and to Google. You should be ashamed, because all you think about is money, and you are very out of touch with what your customers want...
