This article reports on the plan of T-Mobile USA to eliminate pre-installed applications on its mobile phones in the U.S. in 2008. The move is a response to a movement toward making mobile phones an open platform. In this mode, developers can create their own applications and sell them, either directly to consumers or in a revenue-sharing arrangement with the phone maker and the carrier.
