This question is often asked when people buy a new android device. So, what preinstalled system apps are safe to remove after one has rooted the Galaxy Tab?

You can uninstall these apps (or even better freeze them) using Titanium Backup after rooting using this methodthis method.

Here is what Ive removed so far with no problems:

Kobo
eBook
Digital Frame
Readers Hub
Daily Briefing
Y! Finance Clock
Swype
Live walpapers (all of them)
Live wallpaper picker
News and Weather
AccuWeather Clock
Home screen tips
Music Hub
Samsung Apps
com.sec.android.samsungapps.una
World clock
Calendar clock
My files
Memo

There are a bunch of apps that i have no understanding of:

BadgeProvider
ChocoEUKor
com.sec.android.app.lcdtest
CoolEUKor
CP Message
DRM Content
English Dictionary
Factory Test
Helv Neue
LbsTestMode
OMACP
Pico TTS**

I never use tts so i dont want an extra service constantly running. But its been a problem to uninstall on my Milestone...

Yes, protected apps cant be removed without superuser permissions.

Titanium Backup will do it. There is a new "Chuck Norris Mode" that apparently can remove even more apps.

If only there was some kind of reference list like the win 7 services library that tells you which apps rely on which other apps...

Im wondering if CP Message might be the annoying TouchWiz settings in the taskbar... ControlPanel Message perhaps?

While this was a necessary evil on my Vibrant, I am at a loss as why this again necessary on the Tab. Especially considering it comes with much less bloat IMO. What benefits come from removing these? Performance and battery life are already very acceptable to me. Am I missing something?
