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!

And it makes me wonder if Android really benefits by being 'truly open', because you have devices like the Kindle fire that will release a bastardized version of Android, with anything relating to Google or the Android market removed, and locks users into a different app store.

Are you sure it's locked down? Just a couple of hours ago I was chatting with a friend about it and he had read that people are already sideloading apps onto it without root access. Unfortunately I don't have a source to cite, so take it for what it is (third party hearsay) but if true that would be quite interesting.
