While Google unveiled the latest iteration of Android, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, at a mega event in Hong Kong, many rued the non-availability of the source code of ICS. In fact, this had already led many to believe Google might never release the source code at all, more so since they have already done something similar with the Honeycomb version.
However, in a move that should put all such doubts to rest, Google has announced they will indeed be releasing the source code soon.
“We plan to release the source for the recently-announced Ice Cream Sandwich soon, once it’s available on devices,” revealed Google engineer Dan Morrill in a Google+ post.
This should be soothing to a lot of frayed nerves and can also be considered enough to wipe off any grudge that anyone might be having against Google for not having released the Honeycomb source code.
