Sony and LG jump on the Google Play Edition bandwagon


Following similar moves by Samsung and HTC, the Xperia Z Ultra phablet and G-Pad tablet are going on sale as pure Android devices. Though not quite ‘Nexus devices, for a phone or tablet to be defined as a Google Play Edition, it has to do away with all third party apps, user interface skins and other fripperies and instead embrace the pure, unadulterated version of the Android operating system. It means you can buy one with confidence knowing that every time Google updates the Android operating system, the upgrade is only a few days away from arriving on the handset, rather than a few months or even a few years. The LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition features an 8.3-inch HD display, 2GM of RAM and 16GB of internal storage all of which is powered by a rather good 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 chipset.
