Google So, somewhere in the middle of the night (at least for me) Samsung and Google held a joint event, in which they announced both the new Nexus phone, the Galaxy Nexus, and Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. While the Galaxy Nexus is a pretty impressive phone, what we got to see from Ice Cream Sandwich surely didn't drop too many jaws.

they stated that the source for the honeycomb version would not be released and that source code release would happen when phone/tablet branches where fully merged in Icecream Sandwitch.. am I missing something that justifies all the grief over a temporary and planned absence of source release?

I think the source will be released very soon. I think they will hold of releasing it until the flagship phone is available.
It would be kind of embarrassing if ICS was available (unofficially) on the S, SII, Atrix, and all the other phones released within the last year before the flagship phone even hit the shelves.

That does seem to have been the pattern. release to manufacturers, get product on shelves, wait, release to community.

In terms of this round's flagship handset, it does look nice. A slide out keyboard would have sealed the deal for me but very slick bit of kit otherwise.
