It was just recently announced that pure Android will be coming to the HTC One this June and already it seems that HTC will be allowing it's current users of the device the option to experience it as well.

With the release of the news yesterday, there was a bit of speculation in regards to the device and how and if it would be changed to fit it's new pure Android moniker. It was noted during a hands-on demo of the HTC One Google Edition that the OS would work around the current hardware buttons that the HTC One has. While they will remain on the device Google Now will function in the same way as before (a long press of the home button) and the multitasking window will be access by double tapping the home button. 

However, the second little tid-bit that came as well was the cause of concern created by some current HTC One owners that feel like they would have been left out, being stuck with the Sense UI instead of pure Android. HTC noted in response that they are currently "examining the best way to support early adopters of the One." 

Well, what better way of supporting early adopters than by allowing them the choice of stock Android should they so chose? 

All other details regarding this announcement still remain a bit vague, as HTC was unclear as to how or when it would roll out this options, but it seems like a great choice from the company, allowing their customers to choose what they'd like their device to be running. 

Current HTC One owners, if you were given the chance, would you flash your device with stock Android?
