Warning: Google Editions are not Nexus devices!
We were rejoicing when we heard the news about the Google Editions of the HTC One and Samsung S4. However, all that sparkles is not necessarily gold. One of the main reasons why pure android was being celebrated as coming to these high end devices would be the hopes that Google would take over the control of OS updates away from the manufacturers, prompting a quicker and more efficient rollout. Unfortunately, after doing some poking around in the kernels of the newly released device, it seems like we won’t be seeing direct Google updates as we had hoped.
