Amazon has announced a partnership with Verizon Wireless to preload all of its apps on new Android phones

It's certainly not the most exciting news at Amazon's event today, but Verizon Wireless users will want to take note: you're about to get more bloatware preloaded onto your Android devices. With a new partnership, all of Amazon's apps — the Appstore, Kindle, Audible, Zappos, IMDb, Amazon MP3, and the primary Amazon app — will be included on "select" Verizon Wireless Android phones. So far the only devices we could get confirmed are the new Motorola Droid RAZR M (pictured above), LG Intuition, and Samsung Galaxy Stellar. We assume that Google experience devices like any future Nexus phones or tablets will not be subject to this agreement, especially since it looks like this agreement is only being applied to mid-range devices to earn an extra buck.
