Default [Speculation] Stock jellybean for existing ONE owners possible

http://news.yahoo.com/htc-may-allow-existing-htc-one-owners-replace-195539749.html

Not sure if this will actually come to pass when the Google edition is released but I'm definitely game, though I have come to like Zoe I'd be willing to trade it off

I'd miss blinkfeed, but I think I'd trade it for fast updates.

Why does one need fast updates? Like, what is it going to provide that's so much better than what we currently have with Sense 5.0?

Someone explain this to me. I never really understood the point of wiping your device for the purpose of getting a fast update (Regardless of what the update does)

+1 THIS.

It's open to debate, depending on the depth/scope of such, especially a jump to say ANDROID 4.0 > 4.1, which brought about PROJECT BUTTER.

For example,the MOTOROLA XYBOARD is a great tablet,but, sorely lacks ANDROID 4.1,being forever marooned on 4.0.4,which would have probably kept me from selling mine. As it is a full featured top-notch device, having a beautiful display/dual cameras/HD video/dual speakers/I-R BLASTER, etc...., it lacked the smoothness of ANDROID 4.1, a deal breaker, IMHO, once you've tried any device w/it.

However, for the most part, I agree w/your view on fast updates. Of course it's nice to get them in a timely manner, but, more often than not, there's more hype than substance surrounding most updates.

I would assume that the huge impetus behind users moving to Android in the first place is change, new things, originality, etc...so it's not surprising that they want devices that constantly evolve and improve.

That being said, can we assume that the device's limitations are hinging on UI alone? What I mean, is that obviously Jellybean 4.1 works well or whatever, but do we assume that a two year old device that 4.1 is not available for would work THAT much better with it? What maxes out first: the software or the hardware trying to run the software?

And then...at the end of the day there's the $$$ issue...if there's nothing new to buy, nobody's gonna wanna spend money.

Default HTC One Sense and Stock

Seeing how the Stock Android HTC One is coming out soon I was wondering if anyone knows if the people with unlocked One's will be able to switch to the Stock version of Android, essentially, as if we just bought the Stock version? Without the use of a third party ROM?

Any information will be much appreciated!
