LlabTooFeR, developer of the Maximus ROM for newer HTC devices, claims that a "Senseless HTC One" (we're not sure HTC would approve of that phrasing) isn't just a rumor, but is a real device that may be released around the end of summer. The existence of a stock Android HTC One seems to be a fact as far as LlabTooFeR is concerned, although he does seem to be speculating on the "end of summer" release date.
This may just be nothing, or it may point to HTC being a bit too literal in commenting on the original rumor. An HTC spokesman had said, "HTC is not currently planning a ‘Nexus Edition’ of the HTC One." That may well be true, just as there's no such thing as a "Nexus Edition" Samsung Galaxy S4, only a "Google Edition" S4.

This article is ridiculous, the source is taken out of context. LlabTooFeR was giving an ETA for a custom senseless rom release! The source is a rom developer! geez michael, did you read the tweets before listing them as sources? I expect this from pocketnow, and from some other writers on this site; but not you mikey. D";

We've already got senseless Roms, at least 3-4 AOSP/AOKP/CM10 Roms. 4.2.2 is everywhere for the HTC One. I installed it earlier today as a matter of fact. I switched back because I actually wanted to keep Blinkfeed and some other things though. Sense 5 is actually pretty good.

I know there are already senseless roms -.- LlabTooFeR was talking about his next senseless release. I never said it was the first. That was another incorrect assumption that pocket now and michael made. Nowhere in the source does it say it is going to be the first senseless HTC one.

Actually no, that's not right. Someone asked LlabTooFeR when the official OTA update of 4.2.2 was coming to the HTC One. LlabTooFeR then responded with the tease saying he thinks it is coming at the end of summer. Someone asked for clarification, and LlabTooFeR dropped it that he was talking about a "Sensless HTC One" aka an HTC One released with stock Android. Besides, there's another leak that is confirming this info. I'm writing it up now.

The problem is with the HTC ONE is that it needs a dedicated menu button or remove the touch keys and just use on screen buttons.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I saw when the phone is rooted the HTC logo on the bottom in the center is actually a button and can be used a menu button. You still need to root it, but who doesn't root these things anyway ;)

you don't need to root it you can just use this app for the HTC logo to work as menu https://play.google.com/store/

HTC is dead. Everyone in that company is abandoning ship.

They look a lot more promising (in North America at least) than Blackberry at that moment. And how exactly is Android better off without HTC?

sadly right now these people thing all android needs is samsung and samsung is everything what they dont realise is with less and less competitions others wont bring much change as they wont have too. progression of tech will slow and innovation will be rarer then it is now HTC produce some excellent devices they need to learn samsungs marketing tricks that they learnt from apple. marketing is the driiving force nowadays
