Dropbox


and
Sony Ericsson


have reached a partnership that will pre-install the cloud service on several upcoming Android devices.

Devices labeled as "Dropbox-powered phones" will be sold in Denmark, the UK, Sweden, Australia 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."

Beginning this month, Sony Ericsson will sell phones in Japan through Softbank that will also have Dropbox pre-installed. In addition, Softbank customers will get 1GB more free on top of the free 2GB already given.

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 is a great service that is loved by many. 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?
