Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich source code now available

Ice Cream SandwichWe still don’t have an official release date for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the first Ice Cream Sandwich phone, in the US but rumors about the operating system’s source code arriving this week have already started surfacing. Well, it looks like those rumors are true because it has arrived ahead of the rumored November 17th release date. Juean-Baptiste Queru, a software engineer working on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) has just confirmed that the source code for Android 4.0.1 is now available.

While this won’t mean much to most of the public (at least for now), it is of significance to manufacturers and the developer community who can start work on creating Ice Cream Sandwich updates for handsets already available on the market. Can anyone say CyanogenMod? Expect various ICS custom ROMs to start popping up left and right in the coming weeks and official updates from manufacturers in the coming months (though it would be a nice change to see manufacturers beat the community to the punch for once). Who’s excited now?
