Last I checked, you can't cherry pick permissions when you install an app, its all or nothing.

CyanogenMod and ROMs with Pdroid do give you cherry-picked permissions, for what it's worth.

Hmm, I'm the iPhone user of the company so I wouldn't know :). But according to nicholasjarnold below LBE Privacy Guard might work for that?

You can absolutely cherry pick permissions (and everyone should). You just can't do it during installation and without a 3rd party helper app. Please look into rooting your device and installing LBE Privacy Guard.

LBE Privacy Guard is only for rooted phones - i.e. most users won't have it.
