Engadget Editorial: All I want for Christmas is a new HTC Nexus


An excellent article on the growing need for android phones with guaranteed software updates straight from Google. Whilst I can't describe myself as an android power-user, I definitely prefer the basic vanilla android installation to any of the customisations provided by phone manufacturers. There's no doubt that they provide extra features, but in my mind they are mostly redundant considering the plethora of specialist options available on the android market, ready for download. I'd prefer to see a basic vanilla android installation with a selection of apps cherry-picked and pre-installed. However, there is one exception being the basic Nokia camera customisations for Windows phone, as well as their application 'Here', which show some promise.
