deleting apps

I am trying to delete the Kindle app on my HTC Rhyme. I hold it down and move to the trashcan, but when I go back to my apps, it is still there. What am I doing wrong?

Dragging it to the trash can simply removes the shortcut from your home screen. Go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications. Open the Kindle app and you will see an option to uninstall.

Edit: Oh, wait, did Kindle come preinstalled? I don't have an option to uninstall that particular app on my phone. It might be bloatware, which means you can't remove it.

verizon and amazon don't want you to remove it!!! i checked on my razr maxx and there is no option to allow me to remove it. glad i empowered verizon to make these choices for me...NOT!!!
