SE Dropbox

Dropbox has reached separate deals with Softbank and Sony Ericsson that will feature the service across Japan as well as pre-install it on several upcoming Android devices.

Upcoming Sony Ericsson devices labeled as "Dropbox-powered phones" will be sold and featured in ten countries across Europe and Asia, including the United Kingdom, Denmark, Sweden, Australia, Austria, Hong Kong, Macau, Indonesia, Republic of Ireland and Italy. We're assuming this just means that Dropbox comes pre-installed with the devices and nothing more. And don't worry, Dropbox will continue to work on non-"Dropbox-powered phones."

Two of the first phones to receive the "Dropbox treatment" are the Xperia Arc and Xperia Play, though the Verizon version will not come with it as of yet.

Dropbox has also reached an agreement with the Japanese powerhouse Softbank, which will feature the service in 7,000 stores across Japan. It certainly will be very beneficial to Dropbox, which will be exposed to many customers who may not know what it is or how it works.

Dropbox is a great service that is loved by many, including us here at Android Central. However, there is a concern that this is just another example of more bloatware, particularly for those who don't use Dropbox. What do you think? Does a phone sway you just because it has Dropbox pre-installed?
