That's why I used quotation marks around pure and didn't say stock Android. Though other than the small amount of Moto apps, Android on Motorola's phones is as close as you'll get to stock Android without buying a Nexus device.This article starts out completely wrong. The "pure edition" is NOT pure Android. This was the first thing motto clarifyed. The old "pure" edition was pure Android. This time pure is an illusion to the fact that they a "pure" Motorola devices free of carrier input, either in physical design or software. The "pure edition" will have all the cool moto stuff, active display, always on, ect, ect.
