Announced earlier this month, the ASUS Transformer Prime is the world's first quad-core Tegra 3 device and it is truly a beast. But don't take our word for it, check out NVIDIA's demo of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich running on the device.
The US product page of the device went live a few days ago, and developers and other enthusiasts will be pleased to learn that the official source code and user manual for the Transformer Prime are now also available via the "download" section.Read More
Never one to keep its source code hidden away from the public's prying eyes (certainly more than can be said for, say, HTC), Motorola has decided to release the DROID RAZR's source code. This should make ROM development significantly easier, so hopefully we'll see a few more alternatives to MOTOBLUR pop up shortly. Devs, get on it!

It looks like HTC may be finally getting into the timely-source-code-release game, as it just pushed the code for a boatload of new devices to its developer portal.
Among the many devices, you'll find the Rezound and Rhyme on Verizon, all variants of the Sensation, the 10.1-inch Jetstream tablet, and the Amaze 4G on T-Mobile, just to name a few.
For the full list of available code (including downloads), head over to the download section at HTCdev.com.Read More
Wow, this happened sooner than we expected - but Google just announced only minutes ago that the source code for Android 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich is on its way to Google's AOSP tree right now. We'll update as we learn more. Here's the original post:
Hi! We just released a bit of code we thought this group might be interested in.
Over at our Android Open-Source Project git servers, the source code
for Android version 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) is now available.
Rohan Shravan, CEO of Notion Ink, updated a blog post yesterday with a rather nonchalant statement revealing that the source code behind Ice Cream Sandwich may be released November 17th. Yes, you read correctly – this Thursday may be the day.
Normally a remark like this wouldn't be taken at face value, but Shravan already has a track record with this sort of thing, having accurately predicted the release of Android Gingerbread last year.Read More
While the Galaxy Note still hasn't made its way to US shores (and possibly never will), that hasn't stopped this gargantuan beast from making a name for itself in other areas of the world. It's big, powerful, comes with a built-in stylus, and has an amazing display. What more could you want?
How about a little hack action.
For devs out there looking to work some magic on this tablet-meets-phone hybrid, Sammy just released the kernel source code to the Open Source Developers Center.Read More
At the end of today's Ice Cream Sandwich unveiling, we found out that the ICS SDK (API 14) was available immediately, but a much more important bit - the source code - was not mentioned at all. It didn't really come as a surprise - historically the source was released about a month after the SDK (with the exception of Honeycomb), but I'd like to clarify something right away for those confused between the SDK and the source code.Read More
We've already seen the source for the AT&T Galaxy S II, the Epic 4G Touch, and a handful of other new devices, so why not throw T-Mo's Galaxy S II into the mix? Sammy dropped the code earlier today -- hit the link below to download it. Let's see how fast that Snapdragon will actually run, gents.Read More
Are you ready for some Friday morning source code? Even if you're not, Samsung thinks you should be -- it just released the source for three new phones to its Open Source Developer Center. The three phones in question are the Stratosphere on Verizon, the Transfix on Cricket Wireless, and the still-unreleased Galaxy Y Pro.
Sure, these three phones aren't powerhouses by any stretch of the imagination, but at least this source can be used to pull every last drop of capability out of them.Read More
