Why haven't they brought Google Play Edition devices over to the UK yet? I fully converted my One to GPe but I don't want to have to rely on that being possible each time I upgrade.

You'd hope with more of their apps and sense being play store driven there is less of a need for a GPe, updates should come much quicker than before.

 

However, I also don't understand why GPe's only come out in the US.

 

Paul, is this something you can shed your knowledge / reasoning on in the next podcast? Thanks!

I ordered mine today from Telus in Canada. Came with a 9000 mah battery pack and a case and their Bluetooth fob.
