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.
[Note: If you're trying to find the source code at the Samsung link, click on "Mobile" (near the top), then scroll down to the SPH-D700 - that's the Epic.]
