Don’t color us surprised, but we’ve learned that the Motorola Droid X will be coming with a large amount of apps pre-installed and we’ve gotten first word of the full list. Along with all of the standard set of apps by Google, we can expect to see Blockbuster online, Swype, an FM Radio, a Motorola Phone Portal, Skype Mobile, Backup Assistant, City ID, Motorola DLNA, Verizon’s Voicemail app, Verizon’s Mobile Hotspot app, and NFL Mobile, of course.
Whether or not some of these apps will be user-removable remains to be seen, but I imagine you wouldn’t want to remove a few of them. SWYPE – even after its developers have opened the floodgates for new beta testers recently – is a welcome addition for any phone with a touch-only interface. Other obvious desirables include Verizon’s voicemail and hotspot apps, but I guess that all comes down to who’s using the phone and what works for them.
In any case, at least you know what’s going to be on your phone before you buy it, so there should be no excuse for making ill-informed decisions at the point of sale.
