PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Google and HTC made a lot of dreams come true this morning when Android head Sundar Pichai announced a version of the HTC One with stock Android at the D11 conference. Google's Hugo Barra happened to have a stock One in his pocket, and he gave me a quick look." This is awesome. So incredibly awesome. This is the way to go for Google to ensure the most popular Android devices can be obtained with stock Android for those of us that want it. It's also great for custom ROM makers - although it might be that crucial driver code is still closed and unusable for custom ROMs. Also, good guy HTC: they might make a downloadable AOSP ROM available for people who bought the HTC One with Sense.

I still have the best part of a year before I'm due to upgrade my HTC One X, but I want one so bad. In fact it's the first time I've ever been excited about a new handset since I bought my first ever smart phone (Google G1 - another HTC device coincidentally)

Its a very, very nice phone. Not my choice of OS, but my god those speakers put every phone on the market to shame.

I like HTC a heck of a lot more than I like Samsung, so I'm hoping they get over their patch of trouble.
