Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) Source Code Released

Google officially released the source code of long waited Android 4.0 also known as Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). Although the repositories will also contain the source code of Android 3.x, Honeycomb, it will be scattered through the history of the various files. Honeycomb was not released as open source because, according to Google, the company took numerous shortcuts in the development of the tablet version of Android. The Google developers are not globally tagging (marking in the history) the 3.x releases of Android in the repository. Queru said: "since Honeycomb was a little incomplete, we want everyone to focus on Ice Cream Sandwich", though he later backed off on this position slightly saying he was considering tagging some of the 3.2.x release in the frameworks to help developers. 
The release comes with ICS 4.0.1, the one Galaxy Nexus will ship with, so it’s the latest version. Unfortunately the device build target, full_maguro, can be used for building a system image for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, though we will get builds for more devices soon, according to Queru. Hopefully developers will be able to port it to other devices pretty soon, because I would really like to see how ICS runs on my Galaxy S II.
There were many rumors that Google will release the Galaxy Nexus at the November 16th event and once with this release we can be nearly sure that’s what the event will be about. All we have to see next is if Google will have more luck with their new device in comparison with the other Nexus-branded smartphones. They will probably be able to take advantage of the fact it will be only ICS smartphone, though I am pretty sure Samsung, HTC, Motorola and all the others will do their best and move fast to release ICS smartphones and updates for the ones currently on the market. Ice Cream Sandwich is the latest and probably the biggest Android update, which unites all devices into one OS and promises a lot of improvements, like speed and battery life. It also comes with exciting new features and an all-new design. It will probably boost Android’s sales even more.
