New HTC One Google Play Edition available for sale

The new HTC One which was announced yesterday is now available with stock Android from Google Play Store. These devices running stock Android are called Google Play Edition devices and they don’t come with the usual bloat-ware or custom UI pushed by the hardware companies.

The phone comes with 32GB internal storage, in addition to an SD-card slot, and 2GB of RAM. The device is available for $699 and will start shipping in 2-3 weeks. These are unlocked devices which get updates from Google faster as there is no OEM or carrier sitting in between to delay the OTA updates.

It’s for those who do want pure Android experience with great hardware as Google’s own Nexus hardware is often not top-notch.
