Update: The discount on the 12-pack of tags has been reduced to 20%, bringing the total price up to $15.98.

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.
