Update: The article and quotes refer to the Developer Edition (64GB) HTC One

While some international versions of the HTC One, including ours, have received their Android 4.2.2 updates, American flavors have not, yet. The situation is similar with the Google Developer Edition HTC One, but it is about to change, according to Jason Mackenzie, HTC’s president of global sales.

While answering questions on Twitter, Mackenzie said that Android “2.2 is minor update so decided to go straight to 4.3”. He was referring to the Google Developer Edition HTC One, and, apparently, the reason behind this move is “because 4.3 is so close. And 2.2 offered limited customer benefit”. Of course, this begs the question: what happens to US carrier branded versions? Will they skip Android 2.2 too? And, of course, international flavor owners, currently on Android 4.2, will also want Google’s latest and greatest.
