Another Android device is on the way to release, and that means it's time for the kernel source to be posted online. Samsung has been so kind as to drop the code for two variants of the Galaxy NX camera on us – the standard international, and a version for South East Asia.

The Jelly Bean-based packages are a hefty 1.1GB for each device, and Samsung's servers are pretty sluggish. Any developers that want to dig around in the code from this bizarre product should get that download started now.

The Galaxy NX doesn't have an official release date, or even a solid price. Some UK sites have listed it at the equivalent of nearly $2,000. We'll see if that holds up for release, but regular "dumb" NX series cameras start at $600-700.

    I agree that the Galaxy NX is a bit on the expensive side. But I still don't get why gadget sites still deliberately makes prices look twice as horrible by referring to the expensive device with taxed UK prices and the cheaper one with tax free US prices. And the convert everything directly to dollars. :)

      Tax free? Well, no. Most US states have a sales tax around 7.5-10%.

        Sounds like you're slowly getting it. =)
        The UK price of the NX300 is £599, while this Galaxy NX is £1,299. Suddenly the actual price difference is not threefold any more.....
