Oops. I think that you'll have to take the kool-aid antidote
Before the device is sold, he has all the right to decide what goes on the device. To offer that seamless initial experience.
After the device is sold, it is no longer HIS. If the user decides to add a crappy app with a crappy interface it's his problem.
It is as if a car manufacturer told you that only attractive friends can go into your car or told you which colours you can paint it.
I really have an issue with people say "he can do whatever he wants with HIS device".
