    I haven't taken the update yet, but I thought it was just the Amazon Appstore being removed, and that only because its function is now integrated into Amazon Underground. I certainly hope I don't lose my other Amazon apps.

    Yeah mine's all there too, both the Amazon app and the Amazon app store app. In fact, right after the update I got a pop-up that the Amazon app store app had an update.

    All the preloaded Amazon stuff is off my phone. The only thing that was remaining after the update were the apps I installed myself, ie Amazon music, Amazon Underground and Amazon Instant Video.

    I have 4 Amazon apps. I believe I installed all of them, so that's probably why they weren't removed.

    The Amazon app store is still on my phone. It's disabled (by my hand) but it's still there.

    I did a factory reset after the update and the Amazon Appstore is not there anymore. Still have Amazon, Amazon Kindle, and Amazon Music.

    The factory image for a phone includes the current (at the time the image was burned) version of whatever bloatware the carrier installs. From there, the Play Store updates the version to keep it current (unless you have disabled it). An OS upgrade simply replaces (or, in this case, removes) the original version of the app. If you have accepted an update to the app, removing an old version from the factory image will not uninstall the new version of the app.

    Net result: Nothing will be forcibly removed from your phone. The only difference now is that if you go to uninstall the app, you will get the prompt "do you want to remove this" and you will actually be able to remove it. If the app was still on the factory image, then you would get the "do you want to uninstall all updates and revert to the default version" and you will not actually be able to uninstall it, only go back to the version that is baked into the firmware.
