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? ;)

I still don't agree with the decision to develop in secret and after the fact open source it. This means that one of the best features of open source, developing the software together, is lost.

And to me Google isn't open if they are closed until release. Though still miles better than the competition. Maybe Mozilla can make a populair open mobile OS.
