Google releases Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich source code

Google on Monday released the source code for the latest version of its Android operating system, Ice Cream Sandwich. This build of Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0.1) is the same version that will ship on the first ICS device, Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus, and it is of course free for developers to donwload. A number of vendors including Motorola have indicated that they would announce preliminary details regarding Android 4 updated schedules following the official release of the operating system’s source code, so we should see details begin to trickle out soon. The Galaxy Nexus is expected to launch later this month as a Verizon Wireless exclusive in the U.S., and a firm launch date will likely be announced soon now that Ice Cream Sandwich has been released.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in
