EDIT: aaaand it's gone from the changelog. :)


The changelog for 2.1.3.7 (Kymijoki) lists some added packages that sound like popular Android applications, nothing sailfishy:

  • harbour-apk-com.adobe.reader
  • harbour-apk-com.gotomeeting
  • harbour-apk-com.microsoft.office.excel
  • harbour-apk-com.microsoft.office.word
  • harbour-apk-com.shazam.android
  • harbour-apk-com.skype.raider

On the devices, though, there's nothing that would obviously correspond to these. What are they? And if they are what they seem to be: Where are they?

my personal guess it's used for the hy004 and hy005 as it maybe applications the vendor likes to install by default. If I recall correct INTEX had also some Android applications installed.

@Nokius Well spotted! I also noticed both, but didn't connect both notions as clever as you did :-)

@Nokius: They deleted the packages from the changelog meanwhile. I guess you're right, though. In if you are, it's not really an "added package" to the OS, but some pre-installed software used by 1 vendor. Better not to have it in the OS-changelog then.

Good thing this is only an option for resellers / branding. At least I'm certain that I don't want any of those spyware applications on my device.

But now I am realy curious what devices "hy004" and "hy005" are - or who might offer devices with MS Office preinstalled. Any hint?
