well. its a good new. hope their future devices will be developer friendly also.
Stock android with some add-on are great like blackberry and many other companies are doing.
Guess they looked how stupid people buying crappy and fake "nokias" and decided to improve sales this way. Stupid way. Stock android still sucks in usability.
I hate these heavy skins. More and more company should follow this trend or easily add some extra features like Oxygen OS which is 99% close to android.
