On the heels of GOOGLE I/O 2013 & the announcement of the SGS4 w/stock ANDROID to be available 6/13 direct from GOOGLE,a statement from HTC
regarding a stock ANDROID experience on the HTC ONE soon followed:
HTC denies HTC One “Nexus Edition” plans - SlashGear
Note that the statement says "NOT @ THIS TIME"
,feel free to read into that what you may.
I myself am awaiting a SENSE ROM (or a stock ANDROID ROM) w/functioning IR blaster for the T-MOBILE variant.
IMHO,I think the developments @ GOOGLE I/O 2013 concerning the SGS4/stock ANDROID experience will benefit all of us & perhaps will influence other mfgs to take a look @ the possibility of offering the stock ANDROID experience on future releases.
