You mean bloatware? Maybe, if Virgin decided to add its own apps to it. But since it's an Android phone you'll just have to root the Incredible and delete your unwanted apps, maybe even flash a custom ROM for a stock experience.

Like how you jailbreak an iPhone, you can root (unlock, crack, hack) an Android phone and install a custom ROM, basically a fresh new version of the OS. But it really isn't necessary if you just want to remove some unwanted apps, so you could just root the Incredible and be done with it.

XDA-Developers already has a sub-forum dedicated to rooting the Incredible S, which should be cracked within the week or so.

The Galaxy S Vibrant is a great phone too, I love mine and we should be getting official Gingerbread soon.
