On Stage at the D11 conference, Sundar Pichai confirmed rumours that an HTC One Google Edition running vanilla Android will be available in the US on June 26th for $600 (so probably about £500 over here). That means the best Android phone in the world will be available unlocked without the clunky HTC Sense skin. Heck yeah.

There's no news on a UK launch as of yet, just a promise from HTC that the Google Edition will be 'initially' US-only.
