Samsung got Oohs and Aahs during the Google I/O opening keynotes, as they presented an unlocked Galaxy S4 running on a stock version of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. This hot new device can be purchased directly from the Google Play Store for $649. Many had hoped that other manufacturers would jump on the bandwagon with this news, but HTC is resting on its laurels. TechnoBuffalo interviewed the company who said that they had no foreseeable plans that would mesh their popular headset with stock Android.
Yesterday's new revelation is hot off the printer and I can't imagine that other manufacturers would decide to follow suite right away. It could be a matter of time before more make like Samsung and adopt stock Android. Is this something that you would like to see happen?
