New Google Play editions are here again, to make your Christmas even Merrier with the launch of two devices from LG and Sony. The LG G Pad 8.3 and the Sony Xperia Ultra GPE went official in the United States each running vanilla build of Android 4.4. And to make it more interesting the devices run respective OEMs and a strictly stock UI without third party software preloads or skins. This means that the feel will be different to the user who buys these devices as far as the look and feel is to go by.
Having Kitkat out of the box is just what every user prays for instead of having to upgrade the phone, which is an uphill task to most of the users. As we seen the G pad 8.3 launch in September, the Google Play edition comes with an upgrade on the Android version to Kitkat 4.4, making it stand out from the earlier model. Being part of the Play edition it should receive regular updates to the latest version of Android straight from Google itself. The original had a noticeably customized version of the OS, so this new incarnation will target those looking for something a bit simpler software-wise, but as usual have the original look of the OEMs.
