Removing built in applications from Android Tablets?

We’ve received another email today that has got us stumped! Janar writes:
I bought Samsung Galaxy GT-P1000 tablet in Saudi Arabia. In this tablet some of the applications like Quran, prayer timings, direction for Khbha etc. can not be removed or uninstalled. Can somebody give solution in this regards.
I had no idea that this sort of thing would occur anywhere in the world, but if you know how to remove these applications from a Samsung Galaxy tablet please comment to this post and we’ll try to let Janar know the good news.

Best HTC ThunderBolt accessories

[Android Devices] ThunderBolt accessories, as determined by you, the buying public. First and foremost, to no one's surprise, is the massive HTC 2750mAh extended battery with extended battery door (seen above). Now that everybody who's anybody has an HTC ThunderBolt (what, you don't have yours yet?) let's take a quick look at some of the must-have  Face it, the thing eats batteries for breakfast, and this ThunderBolt extended battery is the first thing most people are buying.

Regina 3D Launcher

[Android Apps] The main homescreen features a slick flip clock (hello, HTC!) and weather widget. The bad news is that the weather widget might not include your town (yes, really) and to add it manually you need to know some sort of region code. Which I don't know. And I'm not going to bother looking up. And it gets a little worse -- to use the weather feature at all, you have to install the Regina Weather and Regina Weather Server apps in addition to the launcher. And then I still have to look up my region code? No, thanks.

We're starting to see homescreen and launcher replacements settle into a groove. Nice UIs, smooth transitions, and the Regina launcher fits nicely in that space. It's the same basic principle: You have five home screens on which to flip around and place apps, widgets, shortcuts, folders, etc.
