Fans of the new HTC One can now get a Google Play version of the phone

A perfect situation has just come up for those who have already fallen in love with the new HTC One (M8) and have also been fans of the Google version of Android because a Google Play version of the HTC One M8 has been announced and though you can buy it right away, you cannot get it immediately. This new Google Play version of the HTC One M8 is up for sale in the US on the Google Play Store and has been priced at $699.

It is to be kept in mind that it is an unlocked version and it will work on the GSM networks such as AT&T and T-Mobile. It has almost become a trend for the handset makers to customise Android. Many including Huawei, LG Electronics, Samsung, HTC, Sony, and Motorola have done it in order to customize the software with their own particular features. But a lot of users prefer having Google's Android flavor as it is cleaner and less bloated and its update is also swift. This is the same software which has been featured on all Nexus phones and it is also available on the Google Play variations of non-Nexus phones. "The Google Play edition phones automatically receive updates of the latest Android software," Google said on the site. They're "Optimized for the latest apps, [offer] more storage for your content, and [have] a fast, clean user experience."

People are now anxiously waiting to get their hands on the Google Play version of the HTC One M8 which might take another two to three weeks to ship. The ordinary version of the phone features the company's own signature Sense interface. About the phone, Google has said that "Duo Camera features an Ultrapixel camera that is engineered with larger pixels to capture more light and a depth sensor to automatically measure the distance between objects. You can blur backgrounds and highlight your subject, change focus after you've taken your shot, and even add 3D-style dimension and depth."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
