    The only way you can remove apps that you don't want on the phone is to root the device, backup, then remove what you don't want.

    go into /system/app and rename the ones you dont want from .apk to .bak (using ADB or root explorer)

    Can't you just delete them like on the Original D to save system space or is this not recommended quite yet.

    I would think so, I'd just move the .apks to sdcard in case you need to reinstall.
