HTC One Google Edition Coming

This has been confirmed by the same source that leaked the Google Edition GS4 before Google I/O.

Supposedly this will be announced in a few weeks and will be released in the summer.

Do you think that these Google edition phones are necessary when HTC already has a developer edition? I understand that some people prefer "Bohn Stock" android compared to Cyanogenmod, but it doesn't seem like it would be worth the effort from the OEM to undermine their own software development.

I'm still leaning towards the GS4 due to the battery / superior camera. But hopefully there will be some updates to the HTC One to make it on par here soon.

Which one would you buy if they were priced the same?
