Pocketnow Live, Ep. 18: Google Edition smartphones are the next big thing
Google Edition smartphones seem to no only be the trending topic, but also the next big thing. Those preferring a vanilla Android experience, a Nexus experience, if you will, will definitely prefer the Google Edition Samsung Galaxy S 4 and HTC One devices.
Without TouchWiz or Sense, and with the latest vanilla version of stock Android, you can basically choose your own Nexus device. Is this the new trend for the future? Will we see more manufacturers adopt this dualist system of offering a device with two different user experiences? Will this mean that OEM personalization will slowly die, and Android will Windows Phone-ify itself?
That, there, is our topic for today, but, as usual, we can talk about anything that crosses your mind, mobile-related or not. Join us today, Friday, May 31, 2:00 PM EDT (click for your own time zone) for a casual, one-hour-thirty conversation, where you can interact with Pocketnow editors, as usual, every week.
