Agree Def good sign.  What we have here is OEM's able to sell their devices thru traditional methods, then the ability to buy them thru the play store which hopefully speeds up the time for updates.  One more way to reduce that fragmentation the media talking heads always  flap their lips about.

Plus it's good for people who want the feeling of their favorite device but also want stock on that phone.
