    One cool "feature" that was not made obvious during the launch of the HTC Droid DNA is that Amazon's App Suite will come pre-loaded on the new phablet. This is the first time that we have seen this on a Verizon smartphone. Supposedly this is a new arrangement between Verizon and Amazon and we can expect to see other Verizon devices in the future come equipped with the Amazon App Suite. The Amazon App Suite is pre-loaded on Droid DNA’s homescreen, and gives you easy access to services like Amazon Shopping, Kindle, Zappos and more. You can actually sign in with your existing Amazon account, (almost like a Kindle Fire). You can then use Amazon’s one-click ordering and other features. Here's a press release below and a video above.

    yeah cause everyone wants their brand new smartphone loaded with as much crap as humanly possible. oh, and make sure its installed under /system/app to make sure that they have to root it to delete the apps.

    i have no issues with Amazon, I love my kindle fire. But the appstore for amazon sucks, it is always at least 1 release behind the play store, and you have to keep the appstore on the phone to use any apps you have bought from it.

    Still no Amazon video app to take advantage of my Prime membership?
    Yeah I know I can use the browser but if Verizon and Amazon are going to combine bloatware at least make it a total bloat.
