No less than Caesar Sengupta, Vice President, Product Management of Google, was here in the Philippines to launch Android One. Prior to his keynote, he sat down with a few members of the press and had a chat with us about the direction and vision for Android One. He dropped a few bombs that will definitely encourage a lot of Filipinos to consider buying an Android One device over your other smartphones running custom Android versions.
One of the biggest news bits? Android One phones, like the Cherry Mobile One and the MyPhone Uno, will be the first wave of devices to get the newest Android software update, Android M. What does M mean and what are the features it will bring? We have no idea, haha! We’ll definitely dig deeper into this though and research so we can give you guys an advanced primer.
Google’s promise of consistent and fast Android software updates is the key selling point of the Android One line-up. If the software updates are as good as we’re hoping them to be, we can expect that Android One devices will be hot sellers.
