After dropping source code for the Wi-Fi Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus (along with the Galaxy Note 10.1 and Tab 10.1) just last week, Samsung is once again providing eager developers with something to play with over the weekend, releasing kernel source code for T-Mobile's variants of both the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Tab 7.0 to their Opensource download center.

Both packages carry source code for their respective devices' Ice Cream Sandwich-powered kernels.

The head of Google's Android Open Source Project (AOSP), Jean-Baptiste Queru, made an interesting proposal recently. He added a new device to the AOSP repository, but this is no Nexus variant. Queru created an empty git project for the Sony Xperia S, but he needs the community to get behind the initiative. This will be the first device not designed under Google's supervision to be supported under AOSP, and that could be a big deal.

According to Bloomberg, Motorola Mobility has just filed a new lawsuit against Apple at the ITC. Now, ordinarily, we might not report on the filing of such a suit - especially when the complaint hasn't been made public (we have basically zero details). What makes this particular filing important, though, is that it is the first lawsuit filed by Motorola now that it is officially, 100% a part of Google.

Well, well, well, look at what Motorola has done today: it released the long-awaited, often-promised bootloader unlock tool! Unfortunately, the site doesn't appear to be finished just yet, as some of the more important parts - such as FAQ and Supported Devices list - are currently kicking back a "permission denied" error. Boo!

Update: The list of devices initially supported by the unlock tool has been published. Here it is:

  • Photon Q 4G LTE - Sprint
  • Motorola RAZR developer edition - Europe
  • Motorola XOOM - Verizon
  • Motorola XOOM Wifi - Worldwide

Motorola is promising to unlock more devices in the future.

We've just received an email from Motorola announcing an event to be held on September 5th in partnership with Verizon Wireless. We all know it's the RAZR HD, Moto. You can say it. Is it possible we'll see some other surprises from the new, leaner, meaner, Google-owed Moto? Sure, but given Verizon's inclusion on the invite, we're definitely leaning toward the HD being the star of the show.

Considering we've already seen the RAZR HD on blurrycam with full Verizon regalia, we know the device has to be ramping up for release soon.

Update: Unfortunately, neither ASUS nor NVIDIA had anything of value to say about this device:

NVIDIA's response:

Officially, no comment on unannounced products.

ASUS' response:

First I have heard of it, especially since the next tablets up on the roadmap are Windows based.

As many readers have already pointed out in the comments, perhaps this will be a Windows RT tablet. Time will tell.

This is a curious one; a mysterious ASUS tablet has shown up out of the blue at the FCC today, with the model name 'TF500T'.

At this point, the black version of the Galaxy S III has abandoned the "rumor" status and moved into the "yes, it's real, and it's coming soon" realm. Further validating that claim, the black GSIII just showed up on Clove UK.

At this point, the only version that Clove has listed is the 64GB variant. We reached out and inquired about 16 and 32GB variants, but they could neither confirm nor deny whether the device will be available with either of those storage options.

Update: Looks like this may be another fake thrown into the game. A nearly-identical mockup was posted on Twitter not long ago, so this could just be another elaborate hoax.

We've been hearing rumors of the Galaxy Note 2 for several weeks now, and a pretty believable image of the device has now made its way onto the net ahead of Samsung's August 29th event where we fully expect the device to be announced.

A minor update is available for T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy S III which contains a few bug fixes that were present in the previous software as well as AllShare Cast and improvements to device performance and stability.

The latest build, T999UVLH2, is currently rolling out to devices over-the-air, but if you can't update your phone yet, you will be able to get it using KIES instead.

How often do you hear this? Sony has started to roll out Ice Cream Sandwich to the Xperia P ahead of schedule, beating its own date of August 19th.

According to a post on the Sony Mobile blog, the upgrade process is beginning today and continuing globally "over the next few weeks", so if you're an Xperia P owner, keep an eye out for any upgrade notifications on your phone. When ICS is ready for your device, you will be alerted, but Sony says that some users may have to use their PC Companion software to perform the update.
