PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "As many of you already know, Jean-Baptiste Queru, Technical Lead for the Android Open-Source Project at Google, recently started an open source project to build a vanilla Android version for Xperia S (LT26i). From Sony side, we welcome the project and support it with resources and contributions. We always try to promote and support external innovation and the openness that Android brings. We have now published binaries required for the LT26i project to progress." Say what you will about Sony, but this is a fantastic move. Samsung, could you please take a moment from harassing bloggers and do the same for your own devices? Thanks.

Went to see what these binaries are... they are shipped in a rather unconventional format of tar.zip

[edit]

... which I just unziped to find that it is not a zipped tar file, but a zipped up directory with the name SW_binaries_for_Xperia_S_v1.tar
