Uninstalling pre-installed apps without rooting

Is there anyway that we uninstall pre-installed apps without rooting? or bloatware as some may call it. I find it really annoying to see some applications previosly installed which has no use to anyone :/ i know that there are ways to unroot the rooted device, but i dont want to take the risk of rooting straight face  (using a Xperia mini pro)

Thats correct, all preloaded applications are unable to be removed from the handset.

Re: Uninstalling pre-installed apps without rooting

is there a reason on why there are certain apps included, such as Let's Golf? I know all firmwares are different but this app seems to be in all of them

Re: Uninstalling pre-installed apps without rooting

Can you pass on a sugesstion to the software development team to make non system critical apps to be able to be uninstalled by the user if they so wish to.

Hopefully this request can be incorporated in later firmware releases. smile happy
