Taylor Martin might’ve taught you how to make your own carrier-branded HTC One into a fancy Google-Edition version with some crazy (easy) hacking, and he might even have made another video demonstrating all the reasons you should go ahead and do just that. He might even be working on another video, demonstrating how to reverse all that action and return to the BlinkFeed-rocking world of Sense, at this very moment.

But you know what? Sometimes, you don’t want to get involved with all that l33t hax0r nonsense. Sometimes, as discussed on today’s extended episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast, you just want to throw a pile of money at a company -namely Google- and receive a no-skin, no-brand, no-nonsense Google-Edition device in return. HTC was kind enough to ship us just one such device, and we thought we’d turn around and share the experience with you.

So tune in to the video below to see what it’s like to take the wraps off an HTC One Google Edition device (hint: it’s a whole lot like taking the wraps off any other HTC One, but with MOAR GOOGLES). Then stick around next week for some editorial and video commentary on just what it’s like to play with a stock-Android version of the world’s most aluminum handset.
