Just a few days after the launch of the phone, Samsung has honored its commitment and released the source code for the Epic 4G. This news may not be exciting to the layperson, but then again, the average AP reader probably doesn't fit that profile.

Try to contain your excitement.

What does this mean to you? That devs can begin to tweak the software based off the stock build, and it can make developing a custom ROM a bit easier.

This article mentions rooting and flashing of custom ROMs. If you’re unfamiliar with some of the terms, hit up our primers here:

The Galaxy Tab: It has been hyped as the first serious Android tablet. It is now seriously rooted.

Sera-Apps, the group responsible for cracking the Motorola Milestone wide-open, have been up to their antics again.

It's clear from what other reviewers think as well as the specifications Samsung's released so far that the Galaxy Tab will be the Android tablet to get at the time of its launch (which, mind you, has still not been announced). Unfortunately, there are still a few things that could go wrong, not the least of which is pricing. Today, it would appear that mystery has been debunked by a recent tweet from German carrier O2 as well as the latest round of rumors.

Not a bad news day for a Friday, eh? Android Central just got an awesome tip (and accompanying blurrycam photo from the Verizon system) which seems to confirm the rumored launch details of the Samsung Fascinate. Namely, the device will be launching 9/9 with new-contract pricing of $200. Better still, it'll be buy-one-get-any (BOGA) - in other words, it looks like you can actually get two Fascinate's for $200. Not a bad deal at all.

Seems like Sprint is really turning itself around lately, doesn't it? They've managed to stop bleeding customers in the past few months, and it's a fairly safe assumption that their ever-expanding lineup of awesome devices has something to do with it. Looks like they're looking to continue the trend, too: BGR's heard word that the Galaxy Tab will be headed to Sprint sometime in November.

They don't provide any details other than that, so hopefully this ends up being reliable.

Ever since the first rumors about an Apple tablet started circulating around the blogosphere, we Android enthusiasts have been dying to see an Android tablet of equivalent caliber, and it seems like Samsung's new Galaxy Tab might just be the one.

Unfortunately, Android Police did not have a chance to visit, simply because no member of the team lives close enough to Germany to drive there in a reasonable amount of time, and not one of our readers offered to pay for the plane tickets (how disappointing!).

Disclaimer: initially, I was reluctant to pass this one on, but it looks like it may be more credible and less speculative than I first thought.

During IFA today, Samsung confirmed that Gingerbread is next and will be Android 3.0, and that it will be succeeded by Honeycomb (3.5). It is possible that things will change between now and then, but this is an official, public word from Samsung in direct response to a question - fairly concrete.

The long awaited Samsung Galaxy Tab is now official. After finally getting revealed at the IFA 2010 conference just about an hour ago, all proverbial cats are finally out of their proverbial bags. While those members of the press who are actually present on location are playing with display units (unfortunately, that doesn't include us, this time), the rest of us can browse around the official Galaxy Tab site which Samsung launched following the announcement.

Yesterday, Samsung sent out invites for a media launch event happening in NYC on September 16th. 2 announcements are planned:

  1. Official unveiling of Samsung's new Media Hub service and
  2. Showing off the latest Android-powered device.

Android Police gratefully accepted the invitation and picked me to cover it, so expect a post-game report to float on the site sometime after the event concludes.

While we do not yet know for certain what this new "Android-powered device" will be, the invitation does include the "Galaxy S" brand logo.

Phones

Not everyone needs a new phone at this time of year, especially as you probably got your last one some time around Christmas, but if you’re in the market for a decent Android phone on your college-sized budget, here’s the what you’re looking at if you’re one of the four major carriers:

Verizon

  • Motorola Droid - Affordable doesn’t necessarily have to mean cheap, and such is the case with the original Motorola Droid.
