If you are a BlackBerry Storm user you may have already noticed a new installer icon on your device. Verizon partnered with Microsoft and is pushing Bing out to the BlackBerry Storm. Bing comes pre-installed on the BlackBerry Storm2, but, not wanting original Storm users feeling left out, Verizon is making sure that everyone with a touchscreen BlackBerry bearing the Verizon logo is included.
For those of you that don’t want Bing on your BlackBerry Storm simply hide the installer icon. Unfortunately you cannot delete the icon which kind of sucks, however, the space it takes up is negligible. RIM, you should really give users the ability to delete unwanted carrier pushed installer icons. Not doing so really ticks people off and, right now, you need all the good will towards your brand as you can get.
