Maybe it's just me, but it seems like Samsung is getting even faster with open source file releases. Today, the Korean manufacturer dropped open source kernel files for the Galaxy Note 8.0, Samsung's first foray into the tablet-that's-also-a-phone market. Both international and North American variants are represented, so those interested can take their pick.

    Got to give props to Samsung; they let the XDA community have free will

      They release the source because they are legally inclined to. Other than that, you can pretty much dance in hell. And sometimes, the kernel source doesn't even match actual firmware releases.

    I hope they bring the Note 8.0 with the phone to the US. It'd be real interesting to see.
