Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One Google Editions are now on their way
Google must be feeling extra-generous, for users are reporting that instead of the expected 2 to 3 days, the e-mails promise that your stock Android-touting device will, instead, arrive tomorrow. A pretty awesome start of the day for a lot of people, if we're any judge.
A little hazy on the distinctions between the GE versions and the original ones? Well, to start off – both versions of each model feature identical hardware, so you're set on that count. Unlike their respective twins, however, both Googlefied versions will be stripped off their proprietary skins – no TouchWiz for the Galaxy S4, nor Sense 5 for the HTC One. This means no Air Gestures or any other S-branded features for the S4, and no BlinkFeed or Zoe for the One.

A Samsung S4 Active Google Edition is wayyy better than an Xperia Z Google Edition.

At full price, I only see Google selling/moving 2 million units, if they are lucky.
