Sprint: Stop The PPC-6700 Spam

The PPC-6600 and 6700 install a lot of software. These include Audible, data mining apps, a Today app that links to Sprint Business Connection (which, actually is not yet available for the 6700), etc. However, the 6700 actually installs something on top of that, a program which kills the uninstaller for these apps.
Meaning, you can't fully remove the spam Sprint bundles with your PDA. This is made worse by that Windows Mobile 5 runs using flash memory, slowing down the entire system each time these useless DLLs, and registry entries have to be processed.
Sprint, fix this, now. All Sprint (or UTStarcom) has to do is take out the malware uninstall-remover CAB from the ExtROM out. If Sprint does not act, we will. This begs the question, which would be better for Sprint from a PR perspective?
