re: Google Adds Stock-Android Smartphones
I like that Google is offering options for consumers as to what OS they receive when purchasing smartphones. Manufacturer and carried bloatware can be extremely annoying and can diminish from the experience of owning such advanced pieces of technology. In my opinion the trade-off from losing some of the manufacturer perks associated with the phone is worth it. I would much rather have a faster, more responsive phone without all the bloatware than one with advanced picture taking capabilities. I'm sure that if you want those manufacturer perks, you can always find some sort of open source application that can do what you need.
