Google Finally! Jean-Baptiste Queru (yes, husband of) has announced the source code release for Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich (technically, it's 4.0.1). Naturally, this code dump also happens to include the source code for Honeycomb - however, due to Honeycomb's incomplete nature, there's no tags available for it. Not interesting from a let's-build-it-and-code-point of view, but it is interesting for ROM hackers - bring it on, ICS for my Galaxy SII!

Hrm, wonder how many of the "Google isn't open", "Android isn't OSS", etc detractors will now retract their criticisms? ;)

What's really interesting, is that the source code is available before the first device that uses it is.

Will be interesting to see who releases an Adroid 4.0.x upgrade for an already-released phone/tablet first: modders or manufacturers. ;) My bet is on the modding community.
