    They are pre-installed apps or Bloatware as some people call them. You cannot get rid of them unless you Root I believe.

    ugh! i didn't remember these apps being there when I initially purchased the tablet

    it must have been bundled in with a recent upgrade

    Amazon MP3 has come pre-installed on every Android Device I have gotten over the last 3 years. I think it is a standard install. I wouldn't mind the WwF on my Tablet but it never syncs properly and unlike on my iPod Touch I can't link it to play with my Facebook friends.

    Yep the above poster is right. My dad has this phone and I know it was not factory installed. The stupid app gives an uninstall option, but does not uninstall. The app is always trying to update.

    On my Galaxy Tab it gives me an option to "Uninstall Updates", but not to uninstall. These apps were definitely not on myTab when I first purchased it, but they are there now and I cannot get rid of them.

    Try it through the Play Store app. That's how I did it.
