    It's just because the unlocked Pre 2's aren't carrier branded and the carriers determine what bloatware is included in the OS package. Amazon MP3 is part of that.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but every North American branded webos devices had this app and it's not like VZnav or sprint navi so hardly think carrier bloatware with this one but more like a stock webos app to parallel iTunes on iOS. Maybe the launch carriers were getting a cut just like the cut of app sales? But then that would mean no app catalog for unbranded devices. Has to be an opps. It's the best place to get great tunes without all the stupid DRM bullcrap or only working on some devices.

    I have a feeling Palm will be bringing Amazon MP3 to all unlocked NA devices activated in the USA by way of the App Catalog.

    My reason for believing this is as follows:

    1) Amazon MP3 is US-only
    2) The Pre2 GSM doctor is for NA and EU devices, so they can't just bundle it in there
    3) They can't just bundle it in a NA-only doctor, because the NA doctor is for US and Canada

    Putting it into the app catalog would be a win win for those that do want it and for those that don't need it.

    Yep, I hope they do that because even after a fresh Dr. again last night I could not get it to log in to my acct. I just get the login timeout message.

    I tried with and without the service IPK. I ran a "ps aux" at root to see what was already running but didn't find an amazon service either before or after it was installed or even while the amazon app was running.
    Clicking the Thanks button is a great way to say... well THANKS

    After researching how to do this, I could not find a definitive guide, so I figured out the exact commands needed and wrote a guide myself.
