I got quite a laugh from the “‘tech reporter’ tries Android” piece. Yet another self-proclaimed tech expert with no clue.
For the record, Google has for a number of years, offered pure Android devices. These are open and unlocked GSM world phones sold in the Play Store, and branded by the “Nexus” name, and get OS updates directly from Google. They are for the most part flagship phones, and have been built by HTC (Nexus One), Samsung (Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus), with the current “Nexus 4” having been built by LG. They are priced very competitively by Google, usually in the 300-400 range.
Note the Play store versions of the HTC One and Samsung S4 are not Nexus devices, but do have in common the vanilla AOSP Android OS.
