Well its official.  Now that Google is going to have the two biggest phones with stock Android which is the best option?  Stock or Sense?

So this is very interesting.  If true, consider it a major coup for One owners and One developers.

From The Verge.

 

 

HTC also provided another interesting tidbit: it's currently "examining the best way to support early adopters of the One" that may prefer the stock Android experience over Sense, perhaps by way of an AOSP ROM. The company isn't providing specifics on that front just yet. Still, if you're a One owner feeling burned by today's announcement, there may be hope.

If they do end up coming out with an AOSP ROM I would be curious what features stay on the device.  For example, if HTC comes out with their own AOSP based ROM perhaps they would keep the firmware for the IR blaster?  Please?

Unless it's hardware thing, I can't imagine that features will be rolled into the AOSP version. It would defeat some of the purpose of providing an unadulterated version, despite the fact that some of those features (like the IR blaster) are consequentially good.

I am willing to bet that it won't be but I guess it would be wishful thinking.

An HTC developer had this to say:

 

Confirmed: HTC One Nexus Edition will get 4.3 update few weeks after release.

As I've posted elsewhere, I think this is the proverbial "other shoe" dropping from Google's Nexus 4 gambit. A competitive (not last year's specs) phone, unlocked, affordable.

Okay, these are not exactly "affordable" to all buyers, all budgets. They're selling for full, unlocked price. But you're paying full price for hardware, unlocked, and ... at least in the case of the HTC One '13 (and this is confirmed), the updates will come direct from Google. THAT'S one of the big deals imho -- you won't have to wait for HTC or Samsung for an update to trickle through the bedrock of their own dev organizations. You're on the update train with Nexus owners.

These aren't Nexus devices, no one should confuse the two. From what I've learned, Nexus phones are spec devices that Google designs FOR Android. These phones will get pure Android releases ADAPTED FOR those phones. (I based this on the stated fact that the One will come with Beats hardware enabled, software supported, though the Beats icon won't be in the Status Bar. Other One gewgaws, remains to be seen.)

I think Google is waging, and winning, two wars here.

One. Availability of pure Android, with minimal delays or obstacles to OS updates. Availability direct to consumers, with no or minimal interference from carriers (i.e. you can get the Nexus 4 from Google, and T-Mobile offers it). This puts the burden (or does it?) on other makers to stop making their phones' owners wait six months for an Android update, or never ever get one (my Amaze is stuck on ICS, had to wait 7 months or so for that). No more "buy Nexus, or take your chances." This is a minor game changer for those who want the latest Android on a super-duper device, and willing to pay for it.

Two. Availability of unlocked, unfettered phones to consumers, who can then pick their carrier separately from the phone. The growing popularity of those pre-paid carriers is one symptom. Pre-paid plans from a biggie like T-Mobile is another. Google offering this year's most popular (and highly rated) phones, isn't really exceptional itself (Amazon and other wireless vendors will sell you an unlocked phone), but an unlocked phone configured to get update support direct from Google, that's significant. Geeks and enthusiasts knew how to get the hot phones and then pick a carrier, but Google is trying to move this purchasing model up the bell curve to the masses. This could be really interesting to watch. (Sorry, Sprint and Verizon customers. Your networks are unusual, special cases. As Cory said, being an Android enthusiast and a Verizon customer are become mutually exclusive. Sorry if I'm misquoting ya, man.)

Now ... pop some popcorn and see if the Google Play store can handle the stampede when they go on sale. Last year's debacle when the Nexus 4 went on sale should've been an important lesson to Google. Let's hope they learned.

I'm with you Cory. I am a Verizon customer and really wish they would stop being such a bitch about what devices are on their network. An HTC One with stock android would be badass.
