A mandatory over-the-air software update will put V CAST on every Incredible, though this won’t block access to Google’s own Android Market.
This move highlights two things that even Android’s biggest fans hate about the mobile OS:
- App store fragmentation
- Interference from mobile carriers, who force bloatware and other irritations on their customers.
This isn’t a huge deal — Incredible owners can simply ignore the new store. But both of these problems are things Google badly needs to fix.
