PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Open-sourced Android code for the Sony Xperia Z has recently been released on GitHub to enable developers and partners to get knee-deep into the device. Though the promise of vanilla Android is tantalizing, Sony is quick to remind folks that the Android build they're posting isn't meant for everyday use. As you can see from the video, all of the important stuff is working, but there are a few apps and services missing - after all, they don't have the rights to open source everything." This should be mandatory for being allowed to carry the Android trademark. Unlikely, but alas, even cynics such as myself may dream.

"This should be mandatory for being allowed to carry the Android trademark." I could not agree with you more


Even still, until/unless it can get OTA updates from Google, it's still little more than a fake Android device.
